China-Japan relations should not be kidnapped by right-wingers (2)

(People's Daily Online)

16:55, October 11, 2012

Secondly, Japan did not see China clearly. Taking history and reality into consideration, China adheres to the path of peaceful development and advocates the principle of seeking common development while shelving disputes based on the bottom line that China claims sovereignty over Diaoyu Islands. Therefore, it is a serious misjudgment of China’s national willpower to take its restraint as weakness.

Thirdly, it did not see itself clearly. Influenced by the international financial crisis, Japanese economy remains sluggish. Besides, Japan suffered earthquake, tsunami and nuclear leakage in 2011 and its economic recovery heavily depends on Chinese market. Therefore, Japanese politicians should attach importance to national interests and regional security, remain rational and restrained as well as avoid stirring up troubles and inciting antagonism between people of two countries.

Fourthly, it did not see the United States clearly. The United States confuses the Diaoyu Islands issue and it will never sacrifice its own interests for Japan.

The leaders of China and Japan focused on the overall situation and reached an important consensus on the Diaoyu Islands 40 years ago, thus opening the door to normalization of China-Japan relations. However, the current Japanese government ignores the consensus and is kidnapped by domestic right-wing forces, severely damaging the China-Japan relations.
