On Sept. 26, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda stated in the United Nations that relevant territorial issues should be solved according to international laws.
Noda said that the Diaoyu Islands are Japan's inherent territory according to whether the history or international laws.
In the past years, when the Japanese Prime Minister or Foreign Minister gave a speech in the United Nations, they usually talked about the cooperation and relationship between Japan and the international community and rarely mentioned disputable international issues.
But this time, the Japanese government “bravely” broke this convention, hoping that it will get sympathies and even supports of international public opinions.
From Noda's speech, it could be seen that the Japan side, in order to muddy the water, played many tricks.
