China rejects Japan's resolution on S. China Sea oil operations


06-11-2014 17:49 BJT

The Foreign Affairs Committee of Japan’s House of Representatives has passed a resolution, condemning China’s normal operations near the Xisha Islands.

The Committee said China’s oil drilling operations near the Xisha Islands have exacerbated regional tensions. It added Japan would not tolerate China’s unilateral action to seek territory and maritime interests through shows of force.

The resolution also calls for increased cooperation between Japan and other countries, such as the U.S. and southeast Asian countries, to pressure China to abide by international law.

China’s Foreign Ministry responded to Japan’s accusations by saying the Xisha Islands are an integral part of China’s territory. It said China’s exploration and drilling operations have been conducted within its legitimate territory.

The Ministry added some remarks by Japanese leaders have ulterior motives, and will only make the situation worse.
