2012 has become the peak of many territorial conflicts. It is true that it is still a long way to go to reach reconciliation between some countries but at least it is clear what the countries are arguing about. The basis of every conflict is the economy and fighting for mineral resources.
Japan turned out in the centre of all territorial disputes in 2012. It is constantly trying to claim rights on the islands of neighbouring countries.
If it had achieved at least one positive result Japan would have established a precedent for solving all other conflicts. Until recently it was believed that the reason for arguing was Japan's complex of an insular country and its appreciation of any spot of land.
