Beijing: The relations between China and Japan have  hit the lowest point due to territorial dispute. Fu Ying, chairwoman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of China’s National People’s Congress has said that “Government in Beijing would respond effectively to any provocation” that risked upsetting the “order of tranquility” in East Asia.

Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida offered a rebuttal in a separate statement, saying Japan had undertaken “serious reflection” of its wartime and colonial past. “We would like to pursue dialog with China” on security issues, Kishida told the conference.
