Pyongyang, April 26 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the Association of Korean Victims of Forcible Drafting and Their Bereaved Families issued a statement on Wednesday to condemn the Japanese reactionaries’ group visit to the Yasukuni Shrine.
Recently, Takaichi, minister of Internal Affairs, and other right-wing politicians of Japan, including those of the Liberal Democratic Party, the Democratic Progressive Party and the Japan Restoration Party belonging to the “Dietmen’s League for Visiting the Yasukuni Shrine” paid a group visit to the Yasukuni Shrine again, even though they were well aware that it would touch off strong rebuff from the Asian countries.
The group visit is a revelation of the militarist frenzy of the Japanese reactionary politicians keen on eulogizing the murderers sternly punished by history and realizing their ambition to stage a comeback to Korea, the statement said, adding: This is an outright challenge to justice, peace and human rights and a hideous crime against humanity insulting the victims of the past.
The statement warned that the Japanese reactionaries would meet self-destruction for justifying the past crimes and going against the trend of the times.
