|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying's Remarks on the Japanese Internal Affairs Minister's Visit to the Yasukuni Shrine|
Q: Japanese Internal Affairs Minister Yoshitaka Shindo visited the Yasukuni Shrine on January 1. What is China's comment?
A: We strongly protest the Internal Affairs Minister's visit to the Yasukuni Shrine. This is another provocative action taken by the Japanese cabinet member following Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's blatant visit to the Yasukuni Shrine, which reveals once again the dangerous move of Japan who attempts to defend militarist war criminals and challenge the outcome of the world anti-fascist war and the post-war international order. People from China and other Asian countries will by no means allow Japan to set back the wheel of history. We solemnly urge Japan to repent history and change its course.
