|Foreign Ministry Spokesman's Remarks on Japanese LDP's decision to add "continuous visit to the Yasukuni Shrine" to its political platform|
Q: Japanese Liberal Democratic Party decided to
add "continuous visit to the Yasukuni Shrine" to its
politcial platform on January 16. What's your comment?
A: We oppose Japanese leaders' visits to the Yasukuni
Shrine, which contains memorial tablets to World War II top
The only correct attitude towards historical matters is
to "take history as a mirror and orient towards the future".
We hope the Japanese side honor its commitments on reviewing
its history of invasion so as to win trust of its neighbors
and the international community by concrete deeds.
