US Vice President Joe Biden will meet Japanese leaders today, with Tokyo hoping for some fulsome backing in its vicious territorial spat with China.

Biden arrived in Tokyo yesterday on the first leg of an Asian tour that will also take him to Beijing and to Seoul.

It comes as tensions in the region are at their highest for years, with China and Japan squaring off over a chain of uninhabited islands in the East China Sea.

Last month Beijing declared an Air Defence Identification Zone, over the East China Sea, including the disputed chain, in which it warned all aircraft had to obey Chinese orders or face unspecified "defensive emergency measures".
