Taipei, March 3 (CNA) The sixth meeting of a Taiwan-Japan fishing commission closed Friday in Tokyo, with both sides agreeing to maintain existing fishing rules in waters near the disputed Diaoyutai Islands in the East China Sea, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Friday.

During the three-day meeting, the two sides also agreed to continue discussions on ways to create a model of operation that is safe for the fishermen, the ministry said.

To ensure the safety of fishing boats operating at sea, the two sides also agreed to persuade boats from their respective countries to install an automatic identification system and to buy shipowners' liability insurance, according to the ministry.

The Taiwan-Japan fishing commission was established as part of an agreement signed in April 2013 by the two countries on fishing rights in the East China Sea near the disputed Diaoyutai Islands, known as the Senkakus Islands in Japan.

Under the terms of the agreement, Taiwanese and Japanese boats can operate freely in a 74,300-square-kilometer area around the uninhabited islets.
