title to territory, occupation, inherent territory, territorial sovereignty
According to Japan’s position, it is clear that the Senkaku Islands are an inherent part of Japan, as evidenced by both historical facts and international law, and therefore there is no “disputes” about the sovereign title of the islands. However, in Mavro Mmatis En Palestine, a dispute is a disagreement on a point of law or fact, a conflict of legal view or interests between two parties, and it is not sufficient for one party to a contentious case to assent that a dispute exists with the other party.
