China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

Abe’s re­marks on Ja­panese his­tory I may have be­come emo­tion­ally at­tached to ‘con­ser­vatism’.

“The view of that great war (World War II) was not formed by the Ja­panese them­selves, but rather by the vic­to­ri­ous Al­lies, and it is by only their judg­ment that (Ja­panese) were con­demned.”

“The def­i­ni­tion of what con­sti­tutes ag­gres­sion has yet to be es­tab­lished in academia or in the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity. Things that hap­pened be­tween na­tions will ap­pear dif­fer­ent depend­ing on which side you view them from.”

It is only nat­u­ral to “honor the spirit of the war dead who gave their lives for the coun­try. ... Our min­is­ters will not cave in to any threats”.
