"Absolutely no concession" on Diaoyu Islands: PLA Daily


16:36, September 12, 2012

BEIJING, Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- The PLA Daily, the flagship newspaper of China's armed forces, carried a commentary Wednesday protesting against the Japanese government's "nationalization" of the Diaoyu Islands, vowing "absolutely no concession" on the issue.

Engaging in the illegal trading of China's sacred territory is "a dangerous move" by the Japanese government and on the wrong track of endangering the bigger interest of China-Japan relations, said the article, run under the byline of Luo Yuan.

The Japanese government's attempt by the so-called "nationalization" is doomed to fail and would never be accepted by the Chinese people, the article said.

"The Chinese government and the Chinese people will absolutely make no concession on territorial sovereignty," it said.

The article urged the Japanese government not to misjudge the situation as today's China is no longer the China during the First Sino-Japanese War in 1894. Neither is it the China during the war of Japanese aggression against China in 1937.

"Long gone are the days when the Chinese territory could be grabbed only by an unequal treaty," it said.

Territorial sovereignty is related to national dignity and a country's core interests. The article warned the Japanese government and its rightwing forces not to underestimate the resolution of the Chinese people.
