Japan’s moves for militarization assailed

Pyongyang, November 19 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun today in a signed commentary dismisses the Japanese reactionaries’ move to justify the official visit to the “Yasukuni Shrine” as a dangerous one to step up militarization of Japan and realise its ambition for overseas expansion.


The paper has come hard on the Liberal Democratic Party’s recent decision to inaugurate dietmen’s council to examine the mode of existence of the “Yasukuni Shrine”.

It says:

The Liberal Democratic Party’s undisguised intention make visit to the “Yasukuni Shrine” official and legal, ignoring public sentiment and opinion at home and abroad, is a vicious challenge to the Asian people.

If the official visit to the “Yasukuni Shrine” is allowed, militarism will be prevalent in the Japanese society to bring about fascistization. Also lurking behind the scheme for the official visit is a sinister intention to imbue foreign heads of state and personages from all walks of life with militarism at the “Yasukuni Shrine” during their stay in Japan.

The Japanese reactionaries should not dream a pipe dream but drop their scheme to make visit to the “Yasukuni Shrine” official.
