TAIPEI, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- Taiwanese leader Ma Ying-jeou Thursday said Taiwan will make no compromises regarding the sovereignty of the Diaoyu Islands.
"We will never compromise on it," Ma said while addressing an academic symposium in Taipei.
If the concerned parties agree to shelve their differences and focus on fishing resource negotiations, it will be conducive to regional peace, Ma said.
Taiwan has strongly protested Japan's recent move to purchase part of the Diaoyu Islands.
