China on Sunday postponed events, scheduled for later this week, marking the 40th anniversary of Sino-Japanese relations in what analysts called “a strong signal” indicating Beijing was adopting a tougher stance.
中国政府于上个星期天宣布将推迟第四十个中日关系周年庆祝活动推迟到本周的迟些时候,有分析指出这是“明显的信号”,表明中国要站在坚定的立场看中日关系。

Two associations – entrusted by the government to organize events to mark the anniversary – cited Japan’s attitude over the Diaoyu Islands as the reason for the postponement.
二大受政府指派将组织这场纪念活动的协会原组织说到,日本政府对于钓鱼岛事件的态度是推迟本次活动的原因。

“Considering the current situation”, events to commemorate the normalization of relations between the two nations will be “adjusted to an appropriate time”, said a statement by the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and the China-Japan Friendship Association.
中国人民对外友好协会和中日友好协会的声明指出,“考虑到现在的状况”,用于庆祝两国关系正常化的活动会“被调整到合适的时间“。

Events were scheduled to take place on Thursday in Beijing to mark the signing of a joint statement between China and Japan on Sept 29, 1972.
原本活动安排在星期二在北京举办,以此来纪念中国和日本在1972年9月29日签订了联合声明。

But “the atmosphere has been ruined” due to Japan’s “buying” of the Diaoyu Islands in the East China Sea earlier this month, the statement said.
同时他们还说到由于日本在本月的前段时间要“购买”位于中国东部海域的钓鱼岛而将“气氛被完全破换了”。

Experts said it is necessary for China to keep pressing Japan.
专家指出中国给日本压力是很有必要的。

“China should be tough on the territorial issue,” said Feng Wei, a specialist on Japanese studies at Fudan University in Shanghai. “China should take this opportunity to push Japan back to the negotiating table.”
上海复旦大学日本研究方面的专家冯伟说“中国在领土问题上的态度应该要坚硬”,”中国应该要借此机会将日本拉到谈判桌上“。

Wang Ping, an expert on Japanese studies with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said it is not a good time to celebrate the anniversary as the consequences triggered by Tokyo’s “islands-purchasing farce” have not ended.
中国社会科学院另一位日本研究方面的专家王平说考虑到现在东京要购买钓鱼岛的问题还没有解决,现在还不是恰当的时间来庆祝。

“We have not seen any sincerity by the Japanese government to improve ties,” Wang said.
王还说”在促进两国关系问题上我们没有看到日本政府的任何诚意“。

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei asked Japan on Saturday to immediately stop all acts that harm China’s territorial sovereignty after about 30 Japanese police officers landed on the Diaoyu Islands citing, as an excuse, that they were preventing Taiwan activists from landing.
在将近30名日本警员以防止台湾的积极分子登陆钓鱼岛的借口上了岛之后外交部发言人洪磊发布声明指出,要求日本政府立即停止所有损害中国领土主权的行为。

More than 1,000 protesters in Taiwan rallied against Japan on Sunday in Taipei.
台湾超过1000名的抗议者于星期六在台北对日本政府的行为表示抗议。

China will use unmanned aerial vehicles to strengthen maritime surveillance over waters around the Diaoyu Islands, Xinhua News Agency reported on Sunday.
新华社在星期六说到,中国将用无人驾驶飞机来加强对钓鱼岛周边海域的监视。

Wang, from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said China should “institutionalize” its patrol of the islands.
中国社会科学院的王平还指出中国应该将对钓鱼的巡查制度化。

Some Japanese politicians have called for Tokyo to change its policy, as tensions with China will hurt key Japanese sectors such as tourism and manufacturing.
一些日本的政客也希望日本政府能改变政策,因为两国关系紧张将不利于日本旅游业和制造业的发展。

Hirohisa Fujii, top adviser to the ruling Democratic Party of Japan, said in an interview with Japanese broadcaster NHK that proposals to shelve the Diaoyu Islands dispute for future settlement should be respected.
日本民主党的决策人物,日本财务大臣藤井裕久在接受日本NHK媒体采访中指出,关于搁置钓鱼岛争端问题的提案应该要受到重视。

Fujii, 80, also chief consultant for Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda in his re-election bid, urged young people in Japan to learn more about history and acknowledge basic facts, such as Japan had colonized Korea in the 20th century and launched an aggressive war against China.
今年80岁,在日本首相野田佳彦竞选连任的担当首席顾问的藤井裕久,希望日本的青年人能够更多的学习历史,承认历史事实。比如说日本曾在20世纪的时候对朝鲜半岛进行了殖民统治,也对中国发起了侵略战争。

Hiromu Nonaka, former Japanese chief cabinet secretary, criticized certain Japanese politicians for making the wrong decisions in dealing with the islands, Xinhua reported.
据新华社报道,前日本内阁秘书长的野中广务指出日本政府在解决钓鱼岛问题上做出了错误的决定。

Nonaka said in a recent interview with Chinese media in Japan that the recent row is a pity and he felt sorry for the Chinese people.
野中广务在日本接受中国媒体采访的时候说到,他因最近的争端 而对中国人民感到抱歉。

“As a Japanese man I feel disgraced. I feel terribly bad for the Chinese people and I want to express my sincere apologies to them,” the 87-year-old senior politician said.
今年87岁的他说到,”作为一个日本人我感到耻辱,我对中国人民感到抱歉,我想对他们表达我真诚的歉意。“

Nonaka, who was also a member of Japan’s lower house and former secretary-general of the Liberal Democratic Party, had planned to visit China in September. But the trip, to mark the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Japan, was postponed.
野中广务曾是日本下议院的一名议员,也是自由民主党的前秘书长,他本打算在9月份来中国参加为纪念中日两国外交关系建立的活动,然而此次活动已被推迟了。

“The political parties in Japan do not seem to be working in the interests of Japan and the Japanese people,” Nonaka said. “They do not have the country’s future direction in mind and haven’t realized the importance of maintaining friendly relations with neighboring countries.”
他还说”日本的政党似乎没有站在日本和日本人民的立场上来采取政策,”“他们不明白日本未来的方向也不明白和周边国家保持友好关系的重要性。”

China passed the United States to become Japan’s largest export-target country in 2009.
中国在2009年就已经超过美国成为日本最大的贸易出口国。

“China has to let Japanese leaders realize that Japan should take China’s position as seriously as it treats the US,” Feng from Fudan University said, calling for Beijing to use more economic measures to press Tokyo.
复旦大学的冯伟说“中国要让日本的领导者们知道他们应该对待中国像对待美国一样的严肃“,他呼吁北京用更多的经济手段来对东京方面施加压力。
