Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Qin Gang's Remarks on Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda's Relevant Comment in Addressing the UN General Assembly

Q: Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda said in his address to the UN General Assembly on September 26 that relevant territorial disputes should be settled based on the rules of international law. What is China's comment?

A: The issue of territorial ownership should be resolved according to historical and jurisprudential evidence. Some individual country ignored historical facts and international law, blatantly violated other countries' territorial sovereignty, denied the outcomes of the victory of the World Anti-Fascist War and seriously challenged the post-war international order. However, it is now trying to take the rules of international law as a cover. This is self-deceiving. Relevant country must face history squarely, take concrete steps to observe international jurisprudence and stop all acts that undermine other countries' territorial sovereignty.
