Niwa, a former trading house executive who served as ambassador to Beijing from mid-2010 until late last year, told reporters on Monday Jan.28, 2013, that the purchase of the uninhabited islands in the East China Sea by Japan's central government was poorly timed and seemed driven by factors he could not explain.
