Another article on Washington Post wrote that ".. any non-commercial aircraft entering a broad zone over the East China Sea must first identify themselves to Beijing, at the risk of facing “defensive emergency measures” from Chinese armed forces..".
So if any foreign military planes approache China's eastern broad zone, should China just sit there and do nothing?

The domestic Chinese mainland press has not used the term 'renaissance' but 'rejuvenation' and the 'Chinese Dream'.
The Western press seems to use terms and concepts that are rooted in Western history. According to online dictionary to mean 'the activity, spirit, or time of the great revival of art, literature, and learning in Europe beginning in the 14th century and extending to the 17th century, marking the transition from the medieval to the modern world.'.
... the focus and the Chinese President is not focusing on arts, literature and learning here but much more..

Taiwan and Mainland are both part of one China. Both the current Taiwan government and the mainland government acknowledge this 1992 Consensus.
Of course Taiwan was part of China (check history). No control does not equal no sovereignty. Similarly while Japan has 'control' over Diaoyu/Senkaku, it does not necessarily equal to Japan has sovereignty the islets. This is also the US official position.
Representatives and people from Taiwan have every right to be acknowledged and thanked by Japanese for their help in Japan's Tsunami. However, diplomatic protocol is a different and not a petty matter. Taiwan should not be diplomatically treated equal to other diplomats of sovereign states because Japan and Taiwan do not have formal diplomatic sovereign statehood relationship and since Japan should show by diplomatic action, not just talk of it's policy remain the same, that it truly by actions honor the Sino-Japan Communique.

For those who cannot and refuse to understand why most people in China, North Korea and South Korea oppose to Japan's successive governments' refusal to admit their previous rulers' brutal invasion and mass killings of civilians and consciously limit their citizens from knowing and learning to the full extent of what their imperial armies have done to other Asian nations during WWII, read this article which is a reflection and realization from a Japanese who studied history in Japan and then moved to Australia.. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-21226068
