Japan should pay serious attention to Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou's Aug. 5 proposals, which include shelving the territorial dispute, jointly developing resources in the East China Sea, writing rules of conduct for the area and maintaining self-restraint to prevent confrontations. It should seek ways to utilize Mr. Ma's proposals to start constructive dialogue with China and Taiwan to prevent future clashes over the Senkakus and to nurture peaceful ties.
