Beijing, June 13 (People's Daily Online)--On June 11, 2012, foreign Ministry spokesperson Liu Weimin held a regular press conference

Q: According to reports, dozens of Japanese from various circles including some lawmakers conducted activities in waters off the Diaoyu Island. How do you comment?

A: The Diaoyu Island and its affiliated islands have been China's inherent territory since ancient times, and China has indisputable sovereignty over them. Any unilateral move taken by Japan over the Diaoyu Island is illegal and invalid. China has lodged solemn representations with Japan, demanding Japan to stop creating new disturbances and safeguard the overall interest of China-Japan relations with concrete actions.
