    And China must abide by the Sino-Japanese Treaty of Friendship signed in 1972 and reaffirmed in 1978.

    At least their government officials are not announcing cancel of bogus trips to Japan to make a statement.

    Given China's recent behaviour in and around the Senkakus, it's deliciously ironic that they deign to make demands of their neighbours about actions that might cause offence to the other party.

    Not to mention chronically hypocritical.

    CCP hypocrites.

    When are they going to "face up to history and respect the feelings of those who were victims" of CCP aggression? The CCP has been responsible for three times more Chinese civilian deaths than the Imperial Japanese army caused from 1937-45. Heck, the CCP can't even express 'regret' over the Tiananmen Square massacre).

    When will the CCP stop memorializing and paying their respects to Mao and his ilk who inflicted untold misery and atrocities on the Chinese populace?

    People living in a glass house, shouldn't be throwing stones. The CCP has no shame.

    Secular: They are indeed hypocrites, but they are correct. Japan is in an ideal position to lead, but instead the government chooses to backstep and deny. In fact, they CHANGE history in all of their textbooks, eliminating all references to sex slaves, and even denying their own military's forced suicides.

    Well you do not need to wake up every time the dogs who are barking all the time without reason. They will quiet once they tired. Communist Chinese leaders and Korean leaders are using Yasukuni Shrine for their political game in their country. Korean leaders need to cover up their corruption with patriotic game plan by using Yasukuni Shrine. Communist Chinese leaders also need to control Chinese peoples’ anger on high rank Communist party members by inciting riot on Japanese Businesses and patriotic game by using Yasukuni Shrine. Both Countries' leaders are sincerely with their stand point on Japanese Politicians visiting to Yasukuni Shrine. They use Yasukuni Shrine issue as tool for to cover up their corruptions and crimes from their peoples. So Japanese politicians must do what they have to do. Visiting to Yasukuni Shrine is paying respect to Japanese civilians who were died in during the WWII and not particularly pay respect 14 war criminals. Communist Chinese leaders and Korean leaders must understand about that. Stop using Yasukuni Shrine as tool for their political game and out of respect for civilian victims of WWII at Yasukuni Shrine.

    Absolutely... I am NO big fan of China, but they are correct. Japan is behaving, like they've been living in Caves for the last 80 Years. The Entire International Community is watching Japan's conduct, and Yes, China is acting in very poor taste, but Japan has the opportunity to show that they are the Bigger Man of the two, and just face up to the facts, stop Lying, obfuscating, and re-writing the past. This won't go away as long as you keep denying it happened, and for God's sake, stop visiting that shrine, or at the very least, have the Class-A War Criminals moved to another place.

    Japan would be best served by copying the actions of Germany after the war... No one today could accuse Germany of not knowing their dark past. (http://www.nytimes.com/1995/08/17/opinion/17iht-edsteve.t.html)

    Oh, without a doubt, they probably killed many times more....

    But This isn't about what China did to itself, and it's own people, this is about What JAPAN did to CHINA...

    So you're comment is completely irrelevant.

    We already know China Abuses and Kills its OWN People, But this is about What Japan Did To China, NOT what China did to China.

    @Chin4Sailor - My point was, it's laughable that those with blood on their own hands and who suppress the truth of the atrocities they've inflicted on their own people, to regularly point the finger of self righteousness at the Japanese for events that occurred 70 years ago, under the now rejected racist colonial ideologies that guided ALL nation states at that time.

    Oh, and it isn't "what China did to China" - it's 'what the CCP did to China.'

    Why does Japan keep scapegoating the CCP. Sure they are terrible but they are still chinese. Think about what you guys are saying. The reaction isn't the same when an american performs a terrorist act in America as opposed to some guy from the Middle East doing it.

    Anyway, China's logic is that all of Asia belongs to China. What kind of response were they expecting when they claim entire seas as their own?

    "China said on Monday that Japan must face up to history and respect the feelings of those who were victims of wartime aggression, after Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made an offering to a shrine seen as a symbol of Japan’s former militarism."

    China needs to look in the mirro and face their own atrocities before trying to tell another nation what they must and must not do.

    Here some great ideas where the PRC can start,

    first apologies to the people of Tibet and release the nation from it's prison, then apologies to the people's they slaughtered in tiananmen square and lastly tear down the mass-murderer Mao tomb, toss his corpse into a pit and set it ablaze.

    After they do that we can move onto the next stage, it's invasions of neighboring nations.

    After they completely cleanse themselves they can then try and tell others what to do.
