Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda has recently admitted in a television interview that he underestimated the consequences of "nationalizing" the Diaoyu Islands, so he intended to send a special envoy to negotiate with the Chinese side and even personally meet with Chinese leaders on the issue.
The Japanese government first connived at the right-wingers' purchase of the Diaoyu Islands and then "nationalized" them. During the Second World War, someone said that there were no strategists in Japan. Today, some Japanese politicians are still narrow-minded, politically naive and strategically short-sighted. The reasons why Yoshihiko Noda made wrong judgment about the current situation can be summarized into the following aspects:
Firstly, the Japanese side did not see the history clearly. According to the Cairo Declaration and the Potsdam Proclamation, the Diaoyu Islands and the affiliated islets have returned to China after the Second World War. The stance of Japan on the Diaoyu Islands issue is a denial of the victory of the World War against Fascism and a challenge of the postwar international order.
