Japan hit back at China's denouncement of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's speech at a regional security forum, firing the latest salvo in an ongoing tit-for-tat row.

Yesterday Lieutenant General Wang Guanzhong, deputy chief of the general staff of the People's Liberation Army, told the Shangri-La dialogue in Singapore that the comments made by Abe and US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel at the conference were "unacceptable".

But Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said they believe the Chinese senior official made claims based on mistake of facts and defamed our country."

Suga said the Japanese delegation in Singapore immediately made a "strong protest" against the remarks to the Chinese side.
