Japan must think about consequences before provoking China (2)

(People's Daily Online)

08:17, August 22, 2012

The Japanese government must be aware that provocations against China over the Diaoyu Islands will not only damage China-Japan relations, but hurt the feelings of the Chinese people.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the normalization of diplomatic relations between China and Japan, and we cannot help but think of Kakuei Tanaka, Masayoshi Ohira, and other Japanese statesmen who risked their political careers to promote the normalization of diplomatic relations between the two countries. They have thus gone down in history as great statesmen.

At present, certain Japanese politicians are risking their political careers to damage China-Japan relations. They will be swept into the dustbin of history as they are moving against the trend of the times.

The best solution to the Diaoyu Islands dispute is sincere dialogue at the negotiating table. The earlier the two countries return to the negotiating table, the sooner their relations will go back to normal.
