Chinese and Japanese ambassadors to the United Kingdom both appeared on BBC's Newsnight on Wednesday night and talked about the Yasukuni Shrine issue and territorial disputes.

The shrine issue concerns how Japanese understand and reflect on their history of militarism and aggression, said Liu Xiaoming, China's ambassador to London.

The debate between the two ambassadors started at the beginning of the year.
