Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China is determined to defend "every inch" of its territory and ruled out any possibility of compromise on historical and territorial issues with Japan.
"On the two issues of principle, history and territory, there is no room for compromise," he said.
"2014 is not 1914, still less 1894," said Wang
"I want to emphasize that instead of using Germany before the First World War as an object lesson, why not use Germany after the Second World War as a role model?" he added.
