Japan should again apologize to other Asian countries for its wartime behavior, according to the country's former prime minister Tomiichi Murayama.

This would help it to review its past and stop history from repeating itself, he said in his home city of Oita in an exclusive interview with China Daily.

Japan needs to continually consider its past, he said, adding, "It's important for Japan to reflect on history."
