The Foreign Ministry said on Friday that the landing of two Japanese citizens on the Diaoyu Islands has seriously violated China's territorial sovereignty.

A Japanese coast guard official said on Friday that two Japanese nationals landed on the islands on Thursday, despite warnings from the coast guard to stay away.

"Despite our warnings, they dived into the sea from a fishing boat and reached the islands," the official said, adding that the two stayed for 90 minutes before leaving.
