Japan on Tuesday intensified the ongoing territorial dispute with China by setting up a new publicity office aimed at Diaoyu Islands-related propaganda issues.

Observers warned that the move will undermine recent efforts made by the two countries to improve ties.

On Tuesday, Chinese Ambassador to Japan Cheng Yonghua also rejected Tokyo's protest over Chinese marine surveillance vessels patrolling waters off the islands, the Chinese embassy in Japan said.
