China says can manage without Japanese aid

From the Reuters: “Chinese Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing brushed off on Saturday comments from his Japanese counterpart that Tokyo should stop its flow of economic aid, saying that China could get by fine on its own.

Li’s comments come at a time of cooling Sino-Japanese ties due to a series of simmering disputes, including Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi’s visits to a shrine for war dead and a spat over the intrusion of a Chinese submarine into Japanese waters.”
