China will not tolerate test of its will to safeguard sovereignty

Diaoyu Islands have been an inseparable part of China since ancient times. Having indisputable sovereignty over the Diaoyu Islands, China holds a firm and unwavering determination in safeguarding its sovereignty over the Diaoyu Islands.

In September 2010, patrol boats of the Japan Coast Guard collided with a Chinese fishing boat near the Diaoyu Islands. China solemnly pointed out that Japan's patrol boats cannot engage in "law enforcement" activities near the Diaoyu Islands. Attempt to name some islets near the Diaoyu Islands is a blatant move to damage China's core interests.

China has always had its eyes on the big pictures and avoided intensifying the conflicts. Japan should take the strategic and reciprocal relations with China and the peace and stability in East Asia into account. It should not test China's determination to safeguard its sovereignty.
