How could Japan steal Diaoyu Islands with propaganda campaign ? (2)

(People's Daily Online)

09:43, October 20, 2012

Firstly, "nationalization" of the Diaoyu Islands indicates the rise of rightists and extreme nationalism in Japan. Secondly, out of domestic politics, the Noda administration enflames “nationalization” of the Diaoyu Islands. Last but not least, Japan fails to self-examine its history of aggression, which leads to deterioration of current situations.

European politicians had better take public opinions on the Diaoyu Islands issue into consideration before making their decisions. Japan's rash moves aggravate the strategic instability in East Asia, which neither promotes global economic recovery nor serves Europe's interests.

The Diaoyu Islands and the affiliated islets have been an integral part of Chinese territory since ancient times. Japan's propaganda campaign on the islands spat with China is doomed to fail. No matter what tricks Japan may play in international community, the fact that the Chinese territory is illegally stolen and occupied by Japan cannot be changed.
