NEW YORK — The United States on Thursday urged Japan and China to aggressively and quickly resolve a territorial dispute that has deepened animosity between the longtime rivals.

US State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told new Japanese Foreign Minister Seiji Maehara that good ties between China and Japan are crucial to Asia's prosperity.

Crowley said the United States isn't mediating between the countries following Japan's arrest of the Chinese captain of a fishing boat that collided two weeks ago with Japanese coast guard vessels near islands in the East China Sea claimed by both nations.

Crowley said "neither side wants to see the situation escalate to the point where it has long-term regional impact."
