Japan must not misuse international law

(People's Daily Online)

10:05, October 01, 2012

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda talked about the role of the "rule of law" in peaceful settlement of disputes in the general debate of the 67th U.N. General Assembly on Sept. 26, in an attempt to find excuse for Japan's provocation of disputes over territorial land and sea with the international law. Obviously, Noda referred to the Diaoyu Islands issue, though he did not say it directly.

Instead of making introspections on the Diaoyu Islands issue, the Japanese government still tries to make full use of the United Nations as a platform to "justify" its violation of norms of international law, infringement upon China's sovereignty and challenging the postwar international order. The move is self-deceiving and absurd.

After ignoring historical facts and violating norms of international law, the Noda administration proposes to solve the Diaoyu Islands issue through the international law hypocritically. After the Second World War, the Diaoyu Islands and the affiliated islets have returned to China according to the international law. Japan's current stance on the Diaoyu Islands issue is a blatant denial of victory of the World War against fascism and serious challenge of the postwar international order and such international legal documents as Cairo Declaration and Potsdam Proclamation, which will be strongly condemned by the international community.
