Japanese Reactionaries Accused of Visiting Yasukuni Shrine
Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) -- State heavyweights of Japan including the minister of Internal Affairs recently took the lead in visiting the Yasukuni Shrine in group.

Commenting on this, Rodong Sinmun Sunday accuses the Japanese reactionaries of trying to revive the era of the past Empire by putting forward and praising war criminals through the visit to the shrine.

The commentary goes on:

What they are seeking is to make not some limited persons but all Japanese visit the shrine and more thoroughly prepare them to be militarists to drive them into overseas aggression.

That is why the ultra conservative politicians of Japan are visiting the shrine despite protest and denunciation of the international community.

Not the sense of guilt but the militarist idea to inherit the "soul" of the war criminals is being instilled into the Japanese people due to the Japanese reactionaries' persistent moves to spread the militarist idea through the visit to the shrine.

No one can vouch that the rising generation of Japan who are armed through education in the militarist idea would not repeat the past crime-woven history.

The Japanese reactionaries should see the reality with cool head. Many countries are following Japan with heightened vigilance.

The Japanese reactionaries would be well advised to clearly understand that the only way of remaining as a member nation of the international society is to break away the inglorious past.
