Senior Chinese diplomats and analysts have warned of Japan's ongoing efforts to "overthrow the postwar international order", with efforts centered around a global campaign challenging China's sovereignty over the Diaoyu Islands.

In the latest round of the escalating drama, Tokyo conducted a military drill on Sunday simulating the capture and occupation of an island territory.

On Monday, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying responded by saying that "the Chinese side will take firm action if Tokyo employs provocations to escalate the Diaoyu Islands issue."
