China has taken its territorial dispute with Japan regarding the Diayou Island to the UN seeking redressal of grievances – it seems way back in the 19th century, 1895 to be precise, Japan tricked the Chinese to sign a treaty ceding the island to Japan.

Japan renamed the island as Senkaku Island and had been exploiting it till now.

This has been reported in of dated 28th of September 2012.

The present trouble arose over the purchase of the East China Sea islands from a private owner by the government of Japan – this has sparked violent protests in several Chinese cities and has infuriated the Beijing government.

Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi had discussions with his Japanese counterpart Foreign Minister Koichiro Gemba on the dispute and insists that the actions of Japan are illegal and invalid.

Yang Jiechi went on to add that the Japanese cannot change the historical fact that China has territorial sovereignty over the island and that Japan cannot steal Diaoyu and its affiliated islands.

The UN has requested both the sides to resolve the issue through bilateral dialogue and maintain restraint and not escalate tensions in the region.
