History lessons beckon Japan

On Oct 26, Vice-Foreign Minister Zhang Zhijun briefed Chinese and foreign journalists on the Diaoyu Islands issue. Zhang said Japan asking China to choose between the Japanese government and the right-wing forces "purchasing" the islands was like giving a choice between two kinds of poison. It is absurd, and China will never accept any option that undermines its territorial sovereignty.
