China again urged Japan on Thursday to respect the feelings of Chinese people after Japan's leader made his third ritual offering to the war-linked Yasukuni Shrine since he returned to office in December.

On Thursday morning, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made an offering to the Yasukuni Shrine, where Japanese war dead are honored, including 14 Class-A war criminals from World War II, Japan's Kyodo News Agency reported.

On Aug 15, the 68th anniversary of Japan's surrender in the war, Abe provided a ritual offering to the shrine without paying a visit.
