Full Text: Diaoyu Dao, an Inherent Territory of China

BEIJING, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese government issued a white paper on Diaoyu Dao Tuesday, asserting its indisputable sovereignty over it and its affiliated islands.

Diaoyu Dao and its affiliated islands are an inseparable part of the Chinese territory, it is China's inherent territory in all historical, geographical and legal terms, and China enjoys indisputable sovereignty over Diaoyu Dao, the white paper says.

The white paper, titled "Diaoyu Dao, an Inherent Territory of China", was released by the State Council Information Office of the People's Republic of China.

For quite some time, Japan has repeatedly stirred up troubles on the issue of Diaoyu Dao. On September 10, 2012, the Japanese government announced the "purchase" of Diaoyu Dao and its affiliated Nanxiao Dao and Beixiao Dao and the implementation of the so-called "nationalization". This is a move that grossly violates China's territorial sovereignty and seriously tramples on historical facts and international jurisprudence, the white paper says.

China is firmly opposed to Japan's violation of China's sovereignty over Diaoyu Dao in whatever form and has taken resolute measures to curb any such act. China's position on the issue of Diaoyu Dao is clear-cut and consistent, the white paper stresses.
