BEIJING, Aug. 17 (Xinhua) -- Any of Japan's unilateral moves against Chinese nationals is illegal and invalid, China's Foreign Ministry said Friday, after Japan decided to release 14 Chinese nationals it detained earlier this week.

The Chinese nationals were arrested by Japanese police when they went to the Diaoyu Islands in the East China Sea Wednesday afternoon to assert China's sovereignty over the islands.
