Ambassador refutes Japan’s accusation on gas exploration

Chinese Ambassador to Japan, Cheng Yonghua on Thursday slammed Japan’s accusation against China’s oil and gas exploration in the East China Sea.

Japan released 14 photos of Chinese offshore platforms on the website of the Foreign Ministry Wednesday as evidence of China’s unilateral gas field development near the median line between its shoreline and that of Japan in the East China Sea. Cheng said it is groundless since all the platforms Japan disclosed are clearly in waters under China’s jurisdiction.

He said China’s oil and gas exploration has been refrained from entering controversial waters with Japan.
