 China is strongly dissatisfied with and firmly opposes former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe's remarks concerning Taiwan island, and China has lodged solemn representations through diplomatic channels, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday. 

In disregard of the basic norms of international relations and the principles of the four political documents between China and Japan, Abe openly made irresponsible remarks on the Taiwan question, pointed fingers at and made false remarks on China's internal affairs, Wang Wenbin, spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said at Wednesday's media briefing. 

No one should underestimate the strong resolve, determination and capability of the Chinese people in safeguarding national sovereignty and territorial integrity. Whoever dares return to militarism and challenges the bottom line of the Chinese people will have his head bloodied, Wang said. 

Wang's remarks came after Abe's speech, in which he said, "A Taiwan crisis would be a Japan crisis and therefore a crisis for the Japan-US alliance." 

Japan's colonial rule over Taiwan lasted half a century, and it committed numerous crimes; it shoulders grave historical responsibility to the Chinese people, Wang said.
