Issue of the Diaoyu Islands
2005-08-01 14:01:48    CRIENGLISH.com
Like Taiwan, the Diaoyu Islands are inalienable part of the territory of the People's Republic of China.
Diaoyu Island and its associated islands lie in the East China Sea, around 92 nautical miles Northeast of Chilung City, Taiwan Province of China, which are mainly composed of Diaoyu Island, Huangwei Yu, Chiwei Yu, Nanxiao Dao, Beixiao Dao Island and some reefs. Diaoyu Island and its associated islands have long been the inherent territory of China. Like Taiwan, the Diaoyu Islands are inalienable part of the territory of the People's Republic of China. China enjoys indisputable sovereignty over these islands and the natural resources in the surrounding sea. China's sovereignty over these islands is fully proven by history and is legally well-founded. In view of the different positions on Diaoyu Islands from the Japanese side, the Chinese government, proceeding from the development of Sino-Japanese relations and on condition of adhering to China's consistent position, reached an understanding with the Japanese government: The issue of the Diaoyu Islands shall be shelved for future settlement, neither side should take unilateral action and the two sides should try to prevent this issue from becoming a disturbing factor in the overall bilateral relations.
