China warns Japan against using Taiwan as political card

From Japan Today:

Chinese State Councilor Tang Jiaxuan on Saturday expressed strong concern over Japan’s recent actions and comments over Taiwan, and warned Tokyo not to use the island as a “political card” against Beijing, a Japanese lawmaker said.

Taku Yamasaki, a legislator and special adviser to Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, told a press conference Tang made the comments in a meeting with him in the Chinese capital. Tang in particular expressed displeasure over Japanese Foreign Minister Nobutaka Machimura’s remarks last week in New York describing Taiwan as being within the scope of the Japan-U.S. joint security treaty, Yamasaki said.
