BEIJING, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- China was shocked by Japanese Foreign Minister Seiji Maehara's remarks about its reactions following Japan's detention of a Chinese trawler last month, said a Foreign Ministry spokesman Tuesday, urging Japan to take concrete actions to repair ties.

"We feel deeply shocked that he, as a foreign minister of a country, made such remarks," Ma Zhaoxu told a regular briefing.

Ma's comments came after Maehara on Monday said China's countermeasures in September following Japan's detention of a Chinese trawler captain near the East China Sea were extremely "hysterical."
