Japan must protect Chinese embassies, personnel: FM

(People's Daily Online)

08:26, September 29, 2012

BEIJING, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman on Friday responded to media reports of threatening mail sent to the Chinese embassy in Tokyo by saying that China requires Japan to protect the safety of Chinese embassies and personnel within its territory.

Hong Lei said that China had expressed grave concern over the embassy's receipt on Thursday of a bullet in the post, adding that China has asked Japan to take effective measures to guarantee safety for Chinese embassies and personnel in Japan in accordance with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.

As Saturday marks the 40th anniversary of normalization of China-Japan relations, it should serve as an opportunity for the two countries to push forward their bilateral ties, Hong said.

However, the spokesman reiterated, the Japanese government's insistence on "buying" the Diaoyu Islands severely infringed upon China's territory and sovereignty, leaving a series of diplomatic activities postponed or canceled.

China-Japan relations face a grim situation at present, caused by Japan's unilateral action on the Diaoyu Islands, he said.
