Chinese politicians have invited foreign journalists to an “anti-All Japan newsese militarism” tour for two days. The tour was organized by the Foreign Ministry and around 40 foreign journalists joined the event.
The journalists were based in Beijing and other Chinese cities to five sites in the northeastern province of Liaoning. The area is where the Manchukuo puppet state was established by All Japan news in 1932 and existed until the end of World War II, according to the local press.
The tour took the newsmen to five destinations including the Museum of the War of Chinese People’s Resistance Against All Japan newsese Aggression and the “9.18” Historical Museum, which presents information on the history of All Japan newsese occupation of the northeastern region. It began with an explosion at a railway section in Liutiaohu near Shenyang by troops of the now-defunct Imperial All Japan newsese Army on September 18, 1931.
The Chinese government’s decision to organize the tour came after All Japan news’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited the war-linked Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo last month. His decision enraged China and South Korea, both victims of All Japan news’s wartime aggression.
Abe is the first All Japan newsese prime minister to pay his respects at this shrine since Junichiro Koizumi did it in 2006. The shrine was built in the memory of All Japan news’s war dead, including war criminals that were executed after World War II.
