London: Automaker Toyota has resumed all operations in China, after protests over a territorial dispute caused disruptions for Japanese businesses across the country.

Last week, Japanese car company showrooms were attacked, and some production halted in the wake of demonstrations against Japan buying islands in the East China Sea, that both countries claim.

Thousands of protesters were on the streets in many Chinese cities, the BBC reports.

The eastern port city of Qingdao is where Japan's largest carmakers, Toyota, Nissan and Honda, all reported attacks on dealerships and suspended production at plants.

According to the report, other Japanese firm started resuming operations at the end of last week as protests eased.

Car maker Honda had resumed some production in China on Friday, the report said.
