Under Article 3 of the treaty, the islands were placed under the administration of the United States as part of the Nansei Shoto Islands. The Senkaku Islands are included in the areas whose administrative rights were reverted to Japan in accordance with the Agreement between Japan and the United States of America Concerning the Ryukyu Islands and the Daito Islands that entered into force in 1972.

The Senkaku Islands have historically and consistently been part of the Nansei Shoto Islands which have been part of the territory of Japan. From 1885, surveys of the Senkaku Islands had been thoroughly conducted by the Government of Japan through the agencies of Okinawa Prefecture and through other means. Through these surveys, it was confirmed that the Senkaku Islands had been not only uninhabited but also showed no trace of having been under the control of the Qing Dynasty of China. Based on this confirmation, the Government of Japan made a Cabinet Decision on January 14, 1895, to erect markers on the islands to formally incorporate the Senkaku Islands into the territory of Japan. These measures were carried out in accordance with the internationally accepted means of duly acquiring territorial sovereignty under international law (occupation of terra nullius). The Senkaku Islands are not part of Formosa (Taiwan) and the Pescadores Islands that were ceded to Japan from the Qing Dynasty in accordance with Article II of the Treaty of Shimonoseki, concluded in April 1895.

Nonsense.  The Japanese government knew Diaoyudao belonged to Qing China, and were afraid to annex them until after the Qing dynasty was defeated in the Sino-Japanese War of 1894.  Unsure as of January 1895 as to which islands the Qing dynasty would be willing to cede to Japan, with the Diaoyudao islands still being some distance from Taiwan, which Japan had greater confidence it could weasel from China under the duress of its military defeat (through treachery, by the way, not through valor), the Japanese government decided to directly annex it as a terra nullius, which it clearly wasn't as historical documents clearly showed they belonged to China.  Artifacts left on these islands also showed they were occupied by Chinese fishermen during fishing season, and also as safe harbors during the typhoon season.  You have just proven that the Japanese had no historical claim to Diaoyudao as late as 1895, and after that date, could produce no evidence of having any valid sovereignty claim over them either, other than its own say-so, which counts for nothing in international law.

Sorry, China: Japan Has the Better Claim over the Senkakus. Relevant historical facts and legal doctrines favor Japan, which has exercised effective control over the Senkaku Islands for over a century, with prolonged periods of Chinese acquiescence.

Allies made a lawful determination in favor of Japanese title after World War II in accordance with the Potsdam Declaration and Instrument of Surrender. Japan has sovereignty due to the doctrine of acquisitive prescription, which is no more indeterminate than the doctrine of occupation on which China relies, and which trumps China’s original occupation as a later-in-time source of title. Pre-war acquisitive prescription from 1895 to 1937 confirms that the Cairo and Potsdam Declarations did not transfer sovereignty to China and establishes that the 1951 San Francisco Peace Treaty’s allocation of sovereignty to Japan was lawful. Post-war acquisitive prescription from 1951 to 1970 forms a second, freestanding basis for the Japanese claim.

Sorry, your attempt at complicating your nonsense does not interest me at all.

China will rightfully exercise her sovereignty over Diaoyudao.

The 71st anniversary of the Treaty of Surrender of Japan of 1945 is right around the corner . . . and the terms of the Potsdam Proclamation it refers to are crystal clear . . . abide or face the alternative.

It doesn't interest you because you know the islands do not belong to China, so you ignore the facts. Just like China ignores tribunal ruling on the south China sea. Just like it ignores intellectual property laws. Just like its failure to enforce international trade laws. Etc....

Your attempt to appear legitimate by using equal or more space to spout your lies will not work here.  This is equal time but your "facts" are fiction.   China needs not waste any time or saliva to retake what was stolen from her by the Japanese, now allied with Boston 101, as if it would make its defeat more sufferable.
