FM spokesman: Japan's measure "illegal and invalid"
China is protesting Japan's decision to name disputed islands in the Diaoyu Island chain. This comes after Tokyo announced that it will name 158 uninhabited islets in the chain.
Beijing labels Japan's unilateral measure: "illegal and invalid." China's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Qin Gang said the Diaoyu Islands and its affiliated islands are China's inherent territory, and China has named them all. He said China is firmly opposed to any act by the Japanese side that undermines China's territorial sovereignty.
