BEIJING, Aug.1 (Xinhua) - China on Friday opposed Japan's naming of five islets belonging to the Diaoyu Islands, saying the move is illegal and invalid. "China resolutely opposes Japan's move to undermine its territorial sovereignty as the Diaoyu Island and its affiliated islands are China's territory and have been already named by the country," Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said in a statement.
