Russia: Diaoyu Islands belong to China

Some Russian media say Japan’s so-called purchasing of the Diaoyu Islands will not only hurt the relations between China and Japan, but Japan’s economy.

An analyst from the Institute of Far Eastern Studies of the Russian Academy Of Sciences says the Diaoyu Islands is indisputable territory of China whether from the historical background or evidence.

It noted some right-wing parties denied history and called for Japan to learn lessons from World War Two. And some Russia media say Japan’s slumping economy and territorial disputes with its neighboring countries makes some politicians to show their tough stance over the territorial issue to seek more support.

But Japan’s decision to buy the Diaoyu Islands not only hurt the feelings of the Chinese people, but its own economy. It also stressed the issue should be resolved by the two countries, without the interference of any third country.
