|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Qin Gang's Comment on a US Senator's Remarks on the Diaoyu Island|
Q: Japanese media reported that a US Senator claimed on July 15 that Japan has exercised actual control over the Diaoyu Island since WWII and the US also recognizes Japan's sovereignty over the Island. How do you comment?
A: China expresses concern over such reports. The Diaoyu Island has been Chinese territory since ancient times and China has indisputable sovereignty over it. This is a fact that nobody can change.
