Self-deceiving Abe will tarnish Japan's image

Although it refused to send a representative to Beijing to attend the events to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the victory of Chinese People's War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression (1937-45), Japan has been issuing some weird statements.

On Sept 3, the day China held the commemorative events, Japan's top government spokesman Yoshihide Suga said: "China should not excessively focus on its unfortunate past history, but show its intention to tackle common issues facing the international community with a view to the future".

Likewise, he urged UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to "take a neutral position on events that focus mostly on the past" before the world leader landed in Beijing. Republic of Korea President Park Geun-hye, too, was targeted by Japan's right-wing newspaper Sankei Shimbun for joining Ban in China.
