China will continue patrolling the waters near the Diaoyu Islands, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Monday.
Marine surveillance and fishery patrol ships will continue to perform their duties in the area, spokesman Hong Lei said, adding that the waters off the Diaoyu Islands are under China's jurisdiction, Xinhua reported.
As of Saturday nine ships were patrolling the area.
Commenting on Japanese Foreign Minister Koichiro Gemba's recent remarks that the Japanese government hopes to resume talks with Taiwan on fishing in the waters, Hong said the Japanese government should strictly comply with the one-China principle.
He again urged Japan to “correct its mistakes” and return to negotiations to resolve the dispute.
