China Armed Forces to Safeguard Disputed Territory, Xinhua Says

Aug. 30 (Bloomberg) -- China’s armed forces are capable of protecting the country’s maritime rights including islands claimed by both China and Japan, the Xinhua News Agency reported, citing Defense Ministry spokesman Geng Yansheng.

Any action by Japan cannot change China’s claim over the islands, Geng said according to Xinhua. The islands are known as the Diaoyu in Chinese and the Senkaku in Japanese.
