原文标题：China warns Japan over disputed islands
VLADIVOSTOK, RUSSIA: China warned Japan on Saturday it would not back down in a territorial dispute in the East China Sea that has escalated over reports the Japanese government may buy contested islands.
Foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang said China was determined "to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity".
"Japan should take concrete actions to meet the Chinese side halfway to reduce tensions and promote Sino-Japanese ties of mutual benefit," he told reporters on the sidelines of an Asia-Pacific economic summit held this year in the Russia city of Vladivostok.
Often testy Japan-China ties took a turn for the worse in August when pro-Beijing activists landed on a Japanese-controlled island chain, known as Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China.
They were arrested by Japanese authorities and deported. Days later about a dozen Japanese nationalists raised their country's flag on the same island, prompting protests in cities across China.
Reports emerged in the past week that the Japanese government may purchase the islands in an apparent bid to please right-wingers at home, annoying Beijing.
Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda said Friday he would not hold talks with either China or South Korea on the sidelines of the 21-meeting Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation bloc's meeting.
An August visit by South Korea's Lee to Seoul-controlled islands, known as Dokdo in Korean and Takeshima in Japanese, provoked outrage in Tokyo and a diplomatic tit-for-tat.
Noda, however, met Saturday with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is representing President Barack Obama in Vladivostok.
"Considering the current situation in Asia, it is very important that Japan and the US have occasions for close discussions at a high level," Noda told Clinton as the talks between the close allies got under way.
China could also know that she can't afford to make too many enemy. Japan,Korea,Vietnam,Philippine,Cambodia,Thailand & India all are wrong and China is correct.What a joke.
East China sea is the most sensitive thing for China.
Time coming of Nuclear war very soon

In 1962, china got enough chance to take over whole Assam , including your Shillong. However , china has not taken it. In 1993 , India china border agreement is signed, which has caused subjective partition of arunachal prodesh between India and china, which means, china will claim and India will rule. As because, the agreement protects India's interest more than that of china, so long live 1993 agreement. I appeal to Mr David Koyu of Shillong to go through news properly before making a comment on china.

Just another example of Chinese aggression and its growing expansionist policy. The US should stop pandering to China's whims, otherwise they will have a Frankenstein to deal with in the future.

The reason China attacked Vietnam was because Vietnam invaded Cambodia. That is why the Cambodians are still grateful to Chinese!

Good going, keep warning each other.
Japan should not yield to the threats of China. Japan should do what is required to protect its area in the islands, Japan should respond in strong terms

Are are really an uninformed Indian or a pretender? If you are an Indian, I feel sorry for you to quickly align with Japan. Maybe Indians want to experience what Japanese has done. Good luck!

Suresh replies to Kaml
We all know in the current context China is a bigger threat to India, they are helping PAK and our land is also with China. Like how China is strategically working with other countries by keeping India also in view, we should also plan strategically. When it is between China and Japan, we should support Japan. As an Indian i have not forgotten what Japan has done prior to 1947. We suffered due to British and PAK also, but when we are trying to work with British and PAK, why not with Japan. China waged war, took our land and daily it is troubling us, what about that, why we should be silent

"contain China" alliance of USA-India-Japan-Australia-Vietnam sees an opportunity to hurt China. A weakening economy, change in the leadership in Beijing, conflict in South China Sea and Japan sees perfect timing to annex the islands permanently. It will hurt Japan and it will hurt India if they continue Anti-China stance.

Under that Agreement Most of ARunanchal Pradesh is South Tibet and 38,000 Sq. KM of Ladakh is part of China. I am sure you are aware of that.

how could a person be so dumb to even compare this to kashmir dispute. pak is a terrorist nation, the scourge on the earth. they are solely responsible for causing harm to islam and epicenter of global terrorism. rather than giving them more ground to create more terrorist..pak should be attacked by the global forces and all terrorst structures dismanted.

Why China should warn Japan over the East China Sea. Is this area potential for oil exploration. The move of Japan is an irksome news to China. That too, when the US mingles with Japan. If China claim that this territory belongs to them, let them go to UN/International court and present the historical data in support of their claim. Let the world know whether Japan is right or wrong in buying the islands near East China Sea. Or is it that the name includes the word "China", does it mean the territory belongs to China. Why this hue and cry with Japan and USA as well.

China has warned India, Russia, Japan, Mongolia, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, Taiwan, Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia and Tibet (now a part of China) (few conflicts are over the claimed sovereignty over the South China Sea) with whom they have a border issue. Are all these countries at fault or is it an aggression the Chinese government shows? Are these conflicts good or constructive for the future of Asia? They need to know that together we all grow else the west will take away the pie by creating friction between countries that can be excellent partners in this extra ordinary growth story.
