Zhongguang Wang, Beijing, August 26, 2007 (reporter Li Yan) Recently, the Japanese plan to the sea in the circle can be said that deregulation. Just announced a few days before the end of this year to invite the U.S. to participate at the “take back the islands’ military exercises, and recently decided to end of March 2011 the islands reverted to the 25″ state. ” This includes the disputed Diaoyu Islands with China, and is not recognized by China Chong Bird Island reef. Jin Yinan National Defense Strategy Institute, said Major General told reporters: Japan’s recent actions show that its legitimacy is not self-confidence; Strait should be large-minded Chinese people together to defend the maritime rights and interests to achieve win-win both sides of the Chinese nation .
United States and Japan “take back the islands’ military exercises sectarianism
Reporters: Recently, in addition to Japan, the U.S. military announced the invitation to participate at the back end of this year the military Islands exercise outside, and decided to take 25 islands reverted to the “state”, and these include the disputed Diaoyu Islands with China, and is not recognized by China Chong Bird Island reef, how do you see these recent moves in Japan?
Jin Yinan: Japan These recent moves, in fact, not just the outlying islands, including Japan’s own kind of consideration – since World War II he was trying to completely escape this restriction on their own. Because after the end of World War II, the islands of Japan for some time been divided out. Like Japan’s Ryukyu Islands, etc., including Okinotorishima reef not to mention all the international trusteeship, but in fact it lies in American hands. Until 1971, the United States returned Okinawa paper by this agreement, and only then returned to Japan the island – in fact the heart is from the United States, do not want to repay. But it was serious pressure on the Vietnam War forced the United States, and Japan repeated protests, etc., so had to put the island back to Japan. Americans occupy these islands, in fact, was a World War II after the Japanese form of punishment, the spin-off islands.
Reporters: Yalta system.
Jin Yinan: Yes, have been stripped out. So the Japanese in the early 1970s, including Okinawa, Ryukyu Islands back to later, his heart is uneasy, can not be long It has, he has failed to grasp.
we can see, entering the new century, Japan has repeatedly emphasized this problem. Like a red bird reef reefs, including Japan, many politicians have been to the reefs, especially on the reefs, including Shintaro Ishihara, said a lot even at war, the conflict at this clamor, repeatedly declared that Japan The so-called islands of interest, but no one was allowed to encroach. Moreover, the Japanese are doing these things, he has also done a very clever, he try to turn the United States pull in, just as do the talking tiger named pull the banner, wrap themselves to frighten others. Japan itself is actually a full pursuit of the so-called national sovereignty, but he needs to “US-Japan Security Treaty,” to prepare him to do a book. He can say: Look, the Americans admit that this is my land, and the Americans promised to protect.
the islands back to the so-called exercise, a large part of the purpose is. Americans have much initiative? The Japanese have much initiative? In fact from the United States and Japan, the two sides are ax to grind, and the purpose is completely different.
from Japan, Japan would be entirely through this so-called islands exercise a so-called back by other countries in seizing the island. What it actually is to achieve a goal? Is to achieve one of his so-called deterrence purposes, to scare other people. Who will scare through? Mainly through the United States, the so-called US-Japan security issues. “US-Japan Security Treaty,” his cover of all the islands are in it.
practice these things for the United States, the U.S. interpretation is also very vague. The United States and Japan today are willing to co-conduct the joint exercises, the U.S. has the purpose of the United States. The U.S. aim is to exercise, to prove what the U.S. presence in the western Pacific, the United States in the Western Pacific to speak the weight, nothing more. So the U.S. is not really on the islands to Japan, go to the expense of their own soldiers lives, I think this to be much question mark. Because the initial to the Japanese Islands from the Japanese mainland to divest other than just the United States.
on this island that would like to strengthen the legitimacy of total
Reporters: Japan and China to the disputed islands to “nationalization”, which kinds of actions have the force of law? How should we respond?
Jin Yinan: From this point of view, the reason why the Japanese so can not wait, the most obvious is what? Is that the Japanese themselves, the legitimacy of their practice is problematic.
not to mention the Islands, even as the Ryukyu, Okinawa, the legitimacy of the Japanese now feel very problematic. Because including Okinawa, Ryukyu Islands, it is just seizing of 1879. Now of course the Japanese are very eager to let the international community have a common understanding, the Japanese rule, which he believes the island is not too strong to be cured, and then finalize the actual occupation of these islands. Including in particular such as the Diaoyu islands dispute more, these Japanese mind is not the end.
So in these respects, the exercise was held in Japan, he did want to be, not so much the performance of Japan’s self-confidence, in fact, precisely the opposite, showing that he’s not confident, his fear, which kinds of heart has no bottom.
If the “international law”, and has been very reasonable, legitimate, and get international justice and international justice can support you, why you do these things? The reason to do this is to rush through the use of force, through deterrence, and then through the “US-Japan Security Treaty,” a military alliance, the last occupied the islands for curing. The use of such means, can only prove that Japan is now considering these issues, they feel weak.
strait to the big mind to safeguard the common interests
Reporter: In the face of the Diaoyu Islands as well as other maritime rights and interests, there are people advocating the Straits soldiers on both sides should work together to defend ancestral rights, the “ancestors” are ancestors of the “ancestral” and urged a united front between Taiwan and mainland China to jointly safeguard maritime interests. In this regard, what is your view?
Jin Yinan: Actually, that argument is worth considering cross-strait because Strait belong to one China. Although Taiwan has a lot of “dark green” people think that Taiwan should become independent, but we know from historical point of view, we say that the Diaoyu Islands, the Diaoyu Islands is under the jurisdiction of Ilan County, Taiwan, then Taiwan is a province of China. From this broad perspective, from the common interest of the Chinese nation, to completely solve the cross-strait common in these so-called rights of the East China Sea issues, the strait is undoubtedly a win-win situation. What is this win-win situation? Of the Chinese nation and win-win.
from these aspects, in the East China Sea, South China Sea, cross-strait cooperation, the Chinese nation is a win-win situation. In the East China Sea, South China Sea issue, if there are some discordant voices, split, then it is easy to be the other party within the Chinese nation separately. In these two issues, if we all think of themselves as a community of Chinese, then get the complete cooperation is a win-win situation. Of course, at this point there need? Is a more generous heart of the nation, beyond ideology, beyond the social system, beyond the current debate over the so-called unification and independence, find more common ground, then get the two sides will no doubt be a great win-win situation .
but it is an idea, we also take this into account, is actually very difficult to achieve this vision. Difficulties? Is to prevent the emergence of such a situation, in fact, already entered the Japanese consider the scope. Japan in order to prevent the emergence of such cross-strait hold a common position to solve the East China Sea issue, and even solve the South China Sea – Japan made a defense in depth earlier. The depth of prevention, including some from Taiwan political figures, such as Lee Teng-hui, Chen Shui-bian of the various manifestations can be seen. Japan’s work, to some extent is quite effective.
and Taiwan political figures to play some of what banner? The name of so-called safeguard the interests of the island to maintain Taiwan’s interests, from such a standpoint. What actually is? In fact damage the overall interests of the Chinese nation, and caters to the interests of Japan.
Japan are very happy to see cross-strait division, because only the cross-strait division, he was able to split from the status quo, from this contradiction found in gaps, to achieve his own interests, this is Japan considerations.
Reporter: So we should prevent this order “loved ones pain, hatred, quick” thing, right?
Jin Yinan: Right, so we say that we must prevent these things to happen. We often talk about the history of the problem calls for a large-minded, big honor and we call the question. We often say that people make history, but I think, from a historical point of view, there is little in history, there is a big man. You say people like Chen Shui-bian What kind of person he was? That is very typical little. What kind of person is called VIP? Such as Sun Yat-sen, to the nation for the mind, for the struggle of ambition, rather than to personal interests, not the interests of the group aspirations. I imagine Sun Yat-sen, Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, who is such a big man. So the only way to writing great history of big shot. How to cross-strait co-writing, the Chinese nation’s great history? Writing history is the history of great historical or small? Of course, depends on our mind and tolerance, and our pursuit of this specific.
