Former US Rep: Diaoyu Islands part of China

The Diaoyu Islands have belonged to China since ancient times, former US congressman David Wu said.

The Japanese government's behavior on the issue has brought troubles for China-US relations and put the Obama administration in a very awkward situation, Wu said in a recent interview with the Hong Kong-based newspaper Wen Hui Po.

Wu, who stated during his term of office that historically and geographically the Diaoyu Islands have always been a part of China, said he still holds this view-point and it is unfortunate and unnecessary for the United States to get involved in the issue of the Diaoyu Islands.
