Commentary: U.S. move on Diaoyu Islands to backfire against itself (2)


08:27, December 03, 2012

For Washington, to stir up territorial disputes between Asian countries may, in short term, facilitate its pivot to Asia strategy. However, the act, which encourages confrontation rather than cooperation, will not serve the long-term U.S. interests in Asia.

Asia and the Pacific are big enough for both China and the United States. The Asia-Pacific, one of the most dynamic regions, welcomes any country willing to promote and share its peace and prosperity. However, the participant must respect the sovereignty of countries in the region and honor its taking-no-position promise.

Neither the U.S. Senate nor the Japanese rightists can change the fact that the Diaoyu Islands are Chinese inherent territory since ancient times.

Also, the China's determination to defend its territorial sovereignty should never be underestimated. The attempt by the U.S. Senate to muddy the waters over the Diaoyu Island dispute will backfire against itself.
