China urges Japan to reflect on aggression history over Kishida's war shrine offering
China's Foreign Ministry on Monday said it lodged solemn representations with the Japanese side through diplomatic channels over Japan's Prime Minister Fumio Kishida's offering to the war-linked Yasukuni Shrine.
Speaking at a daily press briefing on Monday, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said the Japanese side's move shows its erroneous attitude towards history.
"We urge the Japanese side to earnestly honor its statement and commitment of facing up to and reflecting on its history of aggression, tread carefully on historical issues such as the Yasukuni Shrine, make a clean break with militarism, and win the trust of its Asian neighbors and the international community through concrete actions," Zhao told reporters.
