Washington, June 7 (ANI): A Chinese newspaper has launched an Internet game letting players decide the Senkaku islands issue- with force.

The Global Times launched the game called 'Recover the Diaoyu Islands', which controls People's Liberation Army vessel and shoot Japanese ships and planes, the South China Morning Post reports.

According to Fox News, the game declares that the China's determination to protect the Diaoyu Islands is unwavering!

Victory is achieved when players guide the ship to an island and successfully avoid the Japanese forces.

The Diaoyu Islands, which are known as the Senkaku Islands in Japan, were placed in Japan's control after a post-World War II agreement with the U.S. in 1972.

Last year, Japan nationalized ownership of the uninhabited islands, which used to be privately owned, the South China Morning Post reports.

Since then, China's Foreign Ministry has declared sovereignty over the islands, calling it a "core interest," to claim them for China, the report added. (ANI)
