TOKYO: Japan’s navy has not been invited to join an international flotilla of warships taking part in a ceremonial event in China, an official said on Monday, the latest snub in a row between Asia’s two largest economies. The international fleet review, being held to mark the 65th anniversary of the Chinese Navy, will see warships take part in a sail-past off the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao next month, according to Japanese media reports. “We have not received an invitation,” a spokesman for Japan’s Marine Self-Defense Force told Agence France-Presse.
