Full of BS from China.

Blah, blah and more blah. That is either put up or shut up. You are up against all of the allied nations and while not strong by ourselves are strong united against the common foe.

his country would “properly handle territorial and island disputes” but did not name them.

It will be something like, "We're right, and you're wrong, and we have better boats, planes, and guns."

For all this almost daily huffing and puffing, these guys must be really insecure about their grip on power.

Chinese leader vows to protect territorial interests (and then some)

Don't fret. Global warming will cover those rocks soon enough.

We have to be careful about premodern country China.

The greatest risk to the CCP remains the truly vast number of Chinese on the mainland who are not members of the CCP, once they awaken to their true potential once freer and allowed to elect their own leaders. A kingdom built on sand, like their Spratley Island contructs. http://youtu.be/WjWDrTXMgF8

Now wiat a minute, I'm CONFUSED. Didn't this guy, just last week, say that China would never settle any disputes by FORCE ?

Like it or not, Japan has made this very same statement. I'm amazed that two countries are willing to go to war over a few uninhabited Islands, when they could simply share the resources. I guess greed for money and big egos will rule but in the end, while all regular citizens, (in both countries) will pay the biggest price.

China GTFO

I see they infringe on smaller weaker nations. They don't seem to make similar claims to the north into Russian waters.

Seeing that I receive down votes, are you saying that Japan didn't say they will also defend these islands, including using the military. How many of you are willing to send your children to war over these silly little islands? I can tell you one thing for sure, the leaders of both countries won't send any of their children, yet they are the first to volunteer yours.

why did the commie-china-gov stop just short of the coast of all those countries? why didn't they just shift their claims onto land as well? the idiots think that their claims will be accepted? the idiots will soon come out with the theory that homo-sapiens started in chine and therefore the world belongs to them

china is off its frigging rocker with the claims on that map, lunatics!

The world had best not let time pass letting china build up its navy as this will make things worse, china needs to be told it will face consequences to its belligerent actions.

china's true "enemy" as many know are its own citizens, maybe the rest of Asia will need to stock the Chinese people some so they can topple the commies & start something new!

GW china needs to be told it will face consequences to its belligerent actions.

Need to be told by whom? Who has the capacity to make China face consequences? LOL

More hogwash from the "Chinese Ministry of Propaganda."

Isn't it so depressingly predictable, China’s president and Communist Party secretary, giving perfect example of a political version of the tango, so many step forward followed by as many steps as some backwards. The absolute contempt both Xi and Abe San have for each other was blatantly on display in the body language at the November 10 'summit'. Until both are consigned to the history books expect more of the same.

China, nothing but hot air....lol.......

Moron! It`ll never happen and he knows it.

Lo and behold, all the anti-China trolls have come out of the closet. And btw Abe has recognised the existence of a dispute over the Senkaku / Diaoyu island. Who would've thought?

It is about the oil under the water, not the land . . . Some even say tis was the objective of the Vietnam war.
