Do not attempt to seize half inch of Chinese territory

Recently, in spite of strong oppositions and serious protests from the Chinese side, the Japanese government still “nationalizes” the Diaoyu Islands, which arouses anger among the Chinese people. It is not only a futile and dangerous farce but an open challenge to China’s territorial sovereignty and national dignity.
The Diaoyu Islands and the affiliated islets have been China's inherent territory since ancient times. The Japanese government's so-called “islands-buying” is ridiculous, illegal and invalid, which cannot change the fact that China claims territorial sovereignty over the Diaoyu Islands and the affiliated islets.
The essence of the Japanese government's arbitrary “nationalization” of the Diaoyu Islands is Japan’s intention to nibble Chinese territory in a gradual way. This kind of trick underestimates Chinese people's wisdom, determination and capability to defend the territory and sovereignty. The Japanese government, which thinks “nationalization” is a brilliant move, is actually about to fall off the dangerous abyss.
The Chinese nation loves peace; being mild and gentle does not mean being weak and cowardly. The Chinese government and people always hold a consistent and clear stance on sovereignty issues. The Chinese people have always marched forward bravely especially when the territorial sovereignty and national dignity are threatened,
The comprehensive national strength of new China has greatly increased after more than 30 years of reform and opening up. The Chinese People's Liberation Army has greatly improved its battle effectiveness in the modernization drive. We have the determination and capability to fulfill the sacred mission that the country and people have entrusted. The Chinese government and armed force's resolution and will of defending the national territorial sovereignty are strong and unchangeable. If the Japanese government continues to act arbitrarily, it will have to swallow the bitter fruit.
We advise the Japanese government not to misjudge the situation. The Chinese people will never allow any country to seize even half inch of Chinese territory.
