A Japanese professor says his government should not make the Diaoyu Islands issue a flash point that will harm the country’s relationship with China. Professor Kenichi Uezato, who studies Chinese Poetry at the Okinawa-based University of the Ryukyus, also says Japan cannot prove its sovereignty of the islands.

Professor Kenichi Uezato,, University of the Kyukyus, said, "The Japanese government should not worsen its relations with China by Diaoyu Islands issue. On this issue, Japan should not irritate China. Meanwhile, Japan can not explain clearly to its own people and foreign people that Diaoyu Islands belong to Japan."

Professor Kenichi Uezato has been studying Chinese ancient culture for decades and he has translated Chinese Ancient Poetry into Japanese. He says Japanese people and the government should learn more Chinese culture and history, which is helpful for them to solve disputes and enhance communication between the two governments to iron out differences.
