Beijing Warns US & Japan Over Diaoyu Islands

  • Published on Feb 13, 2017
    China voices concern over a recent statement by Japan and the US that lays claim to a group of disputed islands in the East China Sea. The Chinese foreign ministry spokesman urged Washington and Tokyo to act cautiously, and avoid making false remarks about the Diaoyu Islands. Geng warned such comments will negatively affect regional stability. The Japanese and US leaders recently affirmed that Article five of their security treaty covers the islands, known as the Senkaku in Japan. But China’s foreign ministry says the so-called treaty is a product of the Cold War and should not question China’s sovereignty over the islands.
