BEIJING - China has made a solemn representation to the Japanese government over Tokyo's preliminary decision on Sunday to name four uninhabited islets adjacent to the Diaoyu Islands, Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin said on Monday.

The Japanese government on Sunday gave names to three islets adjacent to Huangwei Yu Island as well as another islet close to Chiwei Yu Island, Japan's Sankei Shimbun newspaper said on Monday.

However, both Huangwei Yu Island and Chiwei Yu Island are among the key components of the Diaoyu Islands, over which China has sovereignty.
