US, Japan cannot change history by confusing the public

The East China Sea remains turbulent. On Jan. 3, U.S. President Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013, which contains China-related clauses and states that the U.S.-Japan Security Treaty is applicable to the Diaoyu Islands. In addition, Japan has recently tried the same old trick of stirring up historical troubles to confuse the public.

Neither the malicious U.S. clauses nor Japan's chicanery can change history or shake China's firm determination to safeguard its territorial sovereignty.

Japan's Jiji Press recently reported that Japan “discovered” a Chinese government document dated May 15, 1950 which acknowledged the Diaoyu Islands belong to the Ryukyu Islands and referred to the islets with Japanese name “Senkakus”, therefore it says this refuted China's claim that the Diaoyu Islands have been affiliated with Taiwan since ancient times.

In fact, it is just an unsigned draft document for reference, and cannot represent the official opinion of China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It can only reflect the drafter's opinion at the time, and was not fully adopted by the Chinese government.
