BEIJING, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) -- China has denounced Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's latest remarks on the Diaoyu Islands and China's Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) over the East China Sea.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang voiced "strong dissatisfaction" over Abe's remarks which was made at the parliament on Friday.

Abe blamed China's acts over the Diaoyu Islands, claiming China is changing the status quo by force. He also criticized China's establishment of the Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) over the East China Sea.

"It's just and legitimate for China to set up the ADIZ, about which Japan is not entitled to criticize," Qin said in a press release.

On the Diaoyu Islands, Qin said the status quo was that the disputes have been shelved and it is Japan which was changing such a situation by sparking disturbances and infringing upon China's territorial sovereignty.

Abe also told the parliament session that the door for dialogue with China has always been open and he would strive to improve relations with China.

"The Japanese leader does not reflect on Japan's aggression history and attempts to turn back the wheel of history. It is the Japanese leader who has shut down the door for dialogue with the Chinese side, with his own acts," Qin said.

Qin urged Abe to take a correct attitude, stop provocation, admit his mistakes and change his track.
