France and Japan vowed to strengthen their military ties, as Tokyo seeks French support in its long-running spat with Beijing over disputed islands that has raised fresh tensions.

Both China and Japan claim a set of islands in the East China Sea - Diaoyu in Chinese and Senkaku in Japanese - as their own territory, and the escalating row has raised concerns that the two countries could eventually come to blows.

French Defence Minister said the two nations planned to cooperate in areas such as the latest generation helicopters, drones and submarines.
