Japanese PM slams China for hurting ties over islands row

New Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has criticised China for ‘wrong handling’ of the territorial row over East China Sea Islands.



London: New Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has criticised China for ‘wrong handling’ of the territorial row over East China Sea Islands.

Abe said it was ‘wrong’ for businesses to be damaged to achieve ‘political objectives’.

According to the BBC, Abe pointed out that the harm is being caused to Japanese companies and Japanese nationals in China, who are contributing to the Chinese economy and society, to achieve political objectives.

He said that this is the wrong behaviour as a nation, which should be responsible in the international community, the report said.

Ties between the two countries have been strained over the islands, called Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China.

Tensions increased further in September, when the previous Japanese government purchased three of the islands from their private Japanese owner.

Japan has control of the islands, but both Beijing and Taipei claim ownership.
