(Xinhua)

08:24, September 18, 2012

BEIJING, Sept. 17 (Xinhua) -- The National Library of China on Monday presented historical documents, atlases and ancient journals regarding the Diaoyu Islands and their affiliated islets in the East China Sea.

The documents are intended to demonstrate that China discovered the Diaoyu Islands at the beginning of the 15th century, as well as put them under its jurisdiction as affiliated islets of Taiwan.

The central government folded the Diaoyu Islands into the defense scope of east China's Fujian province, the documents show.

In 1885, the Meiji administration of Japan found the islands through an investigation by Okinawa authorities in 1895.
