China Urges Abe To Respect Neighbors

China urged Prime Minister Abe of Japan to respect the feelings of Asian people by not visiting or contributing to the Yasukini memorial. “The Yasukini Shrine issue is a grave problem affecting national sentiment and the political foundation of bilateral relations” noted Jin Xide of the Institute of Japan Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. The Foreign Ministry of South Korea called Abe’s donation “very regrettable” and “running counter to establishing a correct perception of history, which serves as the basis of regional peace and stability.”
