China will not tolerate any violations of its sovereignty, Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Zhijun told his Japanese counterpart today.
"China will never tolerate any unilateral actions by Japan that harm Chinese territorial sovereignty,"
Zhang told Japanese Vice Foreign Minister Chikao Kawai in Beijing, according to a statement posted on the Chinese Foreign Ministry's website.
"Japan must banish illusions, undertake searching reflection and use concrete actions to amend its errors, returning to the consensus and understandings reached between our two countries' leaders,"
Footage of Chinese protesters surrounding the US Ambassador to China's car in Beijing has emerged, filmed by the dissident artist Ai Weiwei.
Anti-Japan protests reignited across China today, the sensitive anniversary marking Toyko's occupation of the country.
China moved to clamp down on anti-Japan protests as a number of Japanese firms announced factory shutdowns and urged workers to stay indoors
