China has expressed strong dissatisfaction after foreign ministers from the Group of Seven issued a statement that touched upon disputes in the East and South China Seas. The meeting concluded Monday in the Japanese city of Hiroshima.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang says the G7 member states should honor their commitment of not taking sides on issues involving territorial disputes.

Lu said China's activities in the East and South China Seas are completely within China's sovereignty. He said China is always committed to resolving relevant disputes with countries immediately involved through negotiations in line with international law, on the basis of respecting historical facts.

Lu repeated that China will neither accept nor participate in any arbitration illegally forced upon it. He called on the G7 member states to truly play a constructive role for regional peace and stability, stop making irresponsible remarks and all irresponsible actions.
