Jinping calls for preservation of postwar international order over Senkaku issue

Tokyo, Mar. 25 : Chinese President Xi Jinping has said that China and Russia should ensure the spoils of winning World War II and the postwar international order are preserved.

China has accused Japan of posing "a grave challenge to the postwar international order" by nationalizing the Senkakus last September, and claims the islets were "stolen" by Japan in 1895.

Xi, who is on the first leg of a four-nation tour, and arrived in Moscow on Friday, made the remarks while addressing students at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations, reports The Japan Times.

In an apparent attempt to crank up the pressure on Tokyo over the Senkaku islet chain, which Japan controls and China claims, as well as four Russian-held islands off Hokkaido that Japan wants returned to its jurisdiction, Xi said Beijing and Moscow should support each other on their core national interests.
