Chinese state councilor: 멇be risked committing great felony
DECEMBER 30, 2013 04:52  
밣rime Minister Shinzo Abe visited the Yasukuni Shrine enshrining Class-A war criminals by risking committing a great felony, Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi, in charge of Beijing뭩 diplomacy, strongly blasted Abe on Saturday. 밒t is an open provocation against all the people who love peace in the world, and violent infringement of historical justice and humanity뭩 conscientiousness. Yang announced a statement to this effect with message strongly condemning Abe뭩 visit to Yasukuni on the Chinese foreign ministry뭩 website on the day.

The move comes after Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi summoned Japanese Ambassador to China Masato Kitera on Thursday, the day when Abe paid the visit, and constitutes a strengthened countermeasure taken by Beijing. Yang also appeared in person on China뭩 state-run CCTV, and iterated his message, a move that is rather unusual.

밃be뭩 retrogression of history is facing strong opposition and stern condemnation by the Chinese government and people and the international community, Yang said. 밃be뭩 visit to the Yasukuni Shrine in his capacity as prime minister is not Japan뭩 internal affairs at all, let alone his personal issue, adding, 밒t is related to the fundamental matter of determining the right and the wrong, including aggression and anti-aggression, justice and vice, and light and darkness.

밃be is taking a dangerous path that is damaging fundamental interests of peoples of various countries and the Japanese people. The international community and enlightened people in various segments of Japanese society are expressing concern, Yang said. 밃be should remove very bad impact that derives from grave error through real action without fail, and if he fails to do so, he will lose trust from the international community and will become a complete loser on historical stage.
