No accord on China`s offer to shelve Senkakus dispute: Japan

Japan`s govt insists that the Senkaku Islands are an integral part of Japan.

Tokyo: Japan never agreed to former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping`s 1978 proposal that called for shelving the territorial issue over the Japanese-controlled Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea, Japanese Foreign
Minister Seiji Maehara said.

The remark is apparently aimed at reiterating the Japanese government`s position that the Senkaku Islands are an integral part of Japan and there exists no territorial dispute with China, thus no issue exists to be shelved between the countries.
