S.Korea expresses regret over Japanese PM’s tribute to war shrine

정부 야스쿠니 신사 공물 봉납•참배에 깊은 우려”

S.Korea expresses regret over Japanese PMs tribute to war shrine

 

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sent a tribute to the controversial Yasukuni war shrine on Thursday, the first day of Japan's annual autumn festival.

 

South Korea expressed deep regrets over this ritual, renewing calls for Japan's humble reflection on its past.

 

The Foreign Ministry said in a press release that the government expresses deep regrets over the fact that the Japanese government and parliamentary leaders again sent offerings or visited the Yasukuni Shrine that glorifies Japan's history of wars of invasion.

 

The Yasukuni shrine commemorates more than 2.4 million Japanese deceased soldiers, including 14 class-A war criminals. It has been a source of tension between Japan and neighboring countries that suffered from Japan's past aggressions.
