Internationalization of Diaoyu Islands issue cannot make water muddy

(People's Daily Online)

07:56, September 20, 2012

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda's reference to "countermeasures" in his two recent speeches clearly indicates that Japan does not want to face the issue or resort to negotiation.

About 1,000 Chinese fishing boats will go to waters off the Diaoyu Islands after the summer fishing moratorium in the East China Sea. Noda said that the Japanese government would reinforce the guard system for the Diaoyu Islands and their surrounding waters. Japan has amended the Japan Coast Guard Act to give Japan's coast guard the duty and power of police and to allow them to arrest the people who land on the islands on the spot. He also promised that if he wins the Democratic Party's leadership election on Sept. 21, he will talk about the Diaoyu Islands issue in the general debate of UN General Assembly.

Japan's follow-up measures of illegal "nationalization" of China's Diaoyu Islands are clear. On the one hand, Japan tries to institutionalize its occupation of the Diaoyu Islands through state apparatus. On the other hand, Japan attempts to distort the fact and seek for international support by internationalizing the Diaoyu Islands issue.

These two measures, especially the latter one, are aimed at more than permanent occupation of the Diaoyu Islands.
