Rodong Sinmun Urges Japan to Honestly Settle Its Past Crimes

Pyongyang, June 28 (KCNA) — Recently Japanese Prime Minister Abe appearing on TV chat spouted piffle that “Japan has a willingness to bear the expenses for the denuclearization of Korea”.

Rodong Sinmun Thursday in a commentary says that the pressing task facing Japan is to make unconditional and full apology and reparation for the past crimes committed against the Korean people.
But Japan refuses to admit any of numerous crimes and has no idea of reparation, the commentary says, and goes on:
If the Japanese politicians have an iota of reason, they should come to their senses and do what they are obliged to do, though belatedly.
It is the unavoidable historical responsibility and duty of Japan and the solemn requirements of the times to make an honest apology and reparation for the past crimes.
The Japanese politicians are advised again to stop playing a trick to meddle in the issue of the Korean peninsula, showing off a purse.
If they are interested in peace of the Korean peninsula and the region, they should honestly settle the past, to begin with.
If Japan keeps on evading the settlement of the past as before, it will entail adverse consequences.
