|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Jiang Yu's Remarks|
Q: Two lawmakers from Ishigaki City, Okinawa Prefecture of Japan reportedly set foot on Nanxiao Island, one of the affiliated islands of Diaoyu Island, and left after staying there for a while on the morning of December 10. How do you comment?
A: The Diaoyu Island and its affiliated islands have been China's inherent territory since ancient times. The acts by the two local lawmakers of Japan have gravely infringed upon China's territorial sovereignty, and China has made solemn representations to and strong protest against the Japanese side.
