China media: Japan and islands

State media accuse Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of jeopardising relations after he warned of a heightened security risk from Beijing’s “provocations”.

Mr Abe made the remarks while inspecting two islets near disputed islands known as the Senkaku in Japan and the Diaoyu in China on Wednesday.

“A fox’s tail cannot be hidden. Mr Abe’s true face of coveting the territory of neighbouring countries and undermining regional security and stability was exposed before the world once again,” says the People’s Daily.

“Abe is making Japan more and more like a ‘rogue state’… We hope that Chinese officials keep calm and not get caught in interaction with Abe and his ilk of showing a tough stance. A Foreign Ministry spokesperson dealing with them should be enough,” advises the Global Times.

Military Gen Luo Yuan, however, calls for unity and tougher action against Japan.

“We should forge a united front with all the countries that have disputes over islands and reefs to Japan, to safeguard the fruits of victory of World War II and co-ordinate action. We should report Japan to the United Nations,” he writes in the Global Times.

Some state newspapers, including the China Daily, continue to accuse the Philippines of evasiveness after it said China’s “hard-line position” had made it impossible to continue bilateral talks on South China Sea territorial disputes.

“The Philippine government’s actions have failed to win support domestically and it also has a possibility of being isolated in the international community. The Philippines may want to display its ‘pawn’ role at times, but the US has made clear that it will not choose sides on the South China Sea issue,” the People’s Daily Overseas Edition comments.
