China lodges stern representations with Japan over official's visit to Yasukuni Shrine

China has lodged stern representations with Japan after Japanese industry minister Yasutoshi Nishimura visited the Yasukuni Shrine, which honors convicted Class-A Japanese war criminals from World War II, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin on Sunday.

He added that the Japanese politician's visit to the shrine once again reflects the Japanese side's wrong attitude of not reflecting on its own history of aggression.

China urges Japan to profoundly reflect on its history of aggression and take practical actions to earn the trust of neighboring countries and the international community, Wang said.
