Diaoyu solution lies in strength and unity

(Global Times)

08:25, August 20, 2012

Several Japanese rightists landed on the Diaoyu Islands yesterday, spurring a wave of angry reaction from the Chinese public.

The Diaoyu issue is facing a possible escalation. More than a few Chinese cities saw anti-Japan protests yesterday.

In a forum sponsored by the Global Times on the Diaoyu issue yesterday, scholars and activists from the Chinese mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao offered their suggestions. The Diaoyu issue has become a focus of the nation.

The public has become increasingly aware of the complexity of the issue, but Chinese have also seen the advances the country can make.

There are also complaints, but agreement and unity brought by the Diaoyu crisis among Chinese worldwide are much more obvious. The radical ideas of the minority cannot eclipse the maturity of the majority.

The visit to the Diaoyu Islands by Japanese rightists was a response to the latest Chinese assertion of sovereignty over Diaoyu. The back and forth has exposed to the world the Diaoyu controversy. Japan's claim over Diaoyu is a lie. It also shows strong Chinese public will in safeguarding the country's sovereignty over Diaoyu.

China will definitely take further steps regarding Diaoyu. This is a shared goal of both the government and the public, and also a trend given China's continuous development.
