"Absolutely no concession" on Diaoyu Islands: PLA Daily (3)


16:37, September 12, 2012

The article pointed out that "It's impossible for the Chinese government to shoulder the responsibility unilaterally, and the Chinese government certainly would not trade its own security and territorial sovereignty for peace."

The article said the essence of the dispute on the Diaoyu Islands is not simply an issue of territorial claims.

Japan illegally grabbed the Diaoyu Island and the affiliated islets at the end of the First Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895. China took back the territories that were invaded and occupied by Japan in accordance with the Cairo Declaration and the Potsdam Proclamation after the end of the Second World War, and thus the islands returned to China according to the international law.

As a result, the territorial dispute is not only related to the tragedy endured by the Asian countries, including China under the Japanese aggression, but also indicated whether Japan accepts the outcomes of the Second World War when it unconditionally surrendered, the article said.

The dispute also involved safeguarding the victory of the World Anti-Fascist War, it said.

If letting the Japanese rightwing forces expand unchecked while its government "nationalizes" other country's territory, the Japanese militarism would have a chance of reviving in the future and this could impose serious threat to regional and world peace, the article cautioned.

"The Chinese people had made a significant contribution to that war (the second world war) and they had also paid dearly," the article said. "We'll not let the martyrs' blood to flow in vain."
