Ja­pan cabi­net min­is­ters visit con­tro­ver­sial war shrine

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Two Ja­panese cabi­net min­is­ters vis­ited a con­tro­ver­sial war shrine yes­ter­day, af­ter a mass visit by law­mak­ers an­gered China and South Korea which see it as a painful re­minder of Tokyo’s past ag­gres­sion. The min­is­ters – in­ter­nal af­fairs chief Sanae Takaichi and Kat­sunobu Kato, in charge of women’s em­pow­er­ment – are close to con­ser­va­tive Prime Min­is­ter Shinzo Abe, who did not visit the Ya­sukuni shrine dur­ing this year’s four-day au­tumn fes­ti­val.
