There is of course no need for "negotiators", as the islands have never been Chinese. They were inconspicuous rocks in the middle of the sea until seabed resource deposits were discovered nearby (to answer the question of what they were used for). The Chinese recognized them as Japanese for decades before that 1970 discovery, and the historical documents exist to prove it --- including Chinese maps.
