|Japanese organizers of this month's Asian Winter Games have changed the accommodation for Chinese and South Korean athletes after a row over a hotelier's inflammatory war book Javier Mascherano Argentina Jersey , officials and local media said Tuesday.
The Tokyo-based APA hotel group and other hotels will welcome some 2,300 athletes and supporters from more than 30 countries to Sapporo for the February 19-26 Games.
But APA, one of Japan's largest hotel chains, has triggered an angry backlash from China for a book written by APA's chief executive and placed in guest rooms Guido Pizarro Argentina Jersey , which claims that the infamous 1937 Nanjing Massacre committed by Japanese troops was a "fabrication."
"Considering an instruction from the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) and other factors, we have decided that the Chinese and South Korean delegations will not stay at APA hotels," a Japanese official of the organizing committee told AFP.
Local media said the two delegations were originally scheduled to stay at APA hotels, but the committee official declined to confirm this.
Some 230 Chinese and a similar number of South Koreans are being found new accommodations.
The APA chain insisted it would not remove the controversial book Gonzalo Higuain Argentina Jersey , which also disputes Japan's wartime sex slavery in Korea, from its other hotels in Japan and abroad.
But APA said last week it would now "temporarily" remove all items from rooms in Sapporo except those deemed acceptable by Games organizers, though it said the move was not due to external pressure.
More than 300 Chinese in Japan staged a protest in Shinjuku Central Park in Tokyo on Sunday against the APA chain of hotels, holding banners that read Gabriel Mercado Argentina Jersey , "Boycott APA, safeguard national dignity," and "Free speech requires conscience," Xiao Jie (pseudonym) Facundo Roncaglia Argentina Jersey , one of the co-organizers, told the Global Times on Sunday, adding that 150 Tokyo police officers were assigned to maintain order during the protest.
The Japanese right-wing activists kept rushing over and trying to snatch the Chinese protesters' banners.
Toshio Motoya, chief executive of the APA hotel group Ezequiel Lavezzi Argentina Jersey , wrote the book under a pen name disputing Chinese claims that 300,000 people died in a six-week killing spree by the Japanese military.
He also said that Chinese tourists only make up 5 percent of the APA chain's customers, and that he did not expect the row to affect business.
Takashi Kawamura, mayor of the Japanese city Nagoya Ever Banega Argentina Jersey , agreed with Motoya, saying "There was no killing of civilians in Nanjing," Japan's Asahi Shimbun reported. "If that [Nanjing Massacre] is true, then all Japanese people shall go to Nanjing and kneel Erik Lamela Argentina Jersey ," he said.
Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said Kawamura should keep to his word to kneel and apologize, noting that whoever distorts history and hurts Chinese feelings is intolerable and must pay for it.
ISTANBUL， Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday that his country has not yet "closed book" with the European Union (EU)， but is considering other alternatives after European lawmakers voted lately to freeze talks over Ankara's accession to the bloc.
"At the moment， we have not yet closed book with EU，" Erdogan said at a meeting in Istanbul. "But the picture ahead us does not allow us to have positive expectation."
"We could move on in considering one of these alternatives，" he said， without elaborating.
The president recently talked of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization， a Eurasian political， economic and security organization， as an option for Turkey.
Last Thursday， the European Parliament voted in favor of a non-binding motion on suspending membership talks with Turkey， sparking strong reactions from the country.
Following the vote， Erdogan had threatened to open borders for illegal migrants to flood into Europe.
Turkey has moved to reduce significantly the illegal flow of migrants under a deal reached with the EU in March.
Turkey applied to join the EU in 1987 and started the accession talks in 2005， but the talks have faltered in recent years due to disagreements over issues such as refugees， freedom of press and human rights.
YIXING， China， July 12 (Xinhua) -- China defeated France 75-70 in an international men's basketball friendly here on Tuesday.

The hosts outscored their French peers 20-13 in the third period for a two-point cushion into the final quarter where China geared up defense and fought for rebounds to build a nine-point lead.
After France narrowed the gap to three in the final minute， Zhou Qi made a block and Zhai Xiaochuan found Yi Jianlian with a long pass， who finished with a dunk to secure the win for the hosts.
Yi scored a game-high 27 points while Guo and Zhai combined for 28.
""It's the best game we played since we returned from Italy，"" said Gong Luming， head coach of the Chinese team. ""But we still made errors. The Olympics is coming and we have to be ready.""
