|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Jiang Yu's Remarks on Japan Towing Chinese Fishing Boat for Mock Collision|
Q: It is reported that Japan towed the Chinese fishing boat for a mock collision today. How do you comment?
A: China is firmly opposed to any kind of so-called investigation by the Japanese side on the illegally detained Chinese fishing boat. Japan's so-called evidence-taking is illegal, invalid and in vain. China urges the Japanese side to stop activities that would escalate the situation and let the Chinese fishermen and their boat return immediately and unconditionally, which is the only way to solve the problem.
