Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Qin Gang's Remarks on Japanese Right-wing Activists' Landing on the Diaoyu Islands

2012/08/19

Q: It is reported that 150 Japanese parliamentarians and right-wing activists went to waters off the Diaoyu Islands to "mourn the war dead", among whom ten people landed on the Diaoyu Island. How does China comment?

A: The illegal act of the Japanese right-wing activists has infringed upon China's territorial sovereignty. The leading official of the Chinese Foreign Ministry has made solemn representations and lodged strong protest with Japan, urging it to immediately stop taking actions that harm China's territorial sovereignty.

Japan should properly handle the current problem through concrete actions to avoid serious damage to the larger China-Japan relations.
