Japan attempts to tamper history through Diaoyu Islands "purchase": German expert (2)

(Xinhua)

09:21, September 19, 2012

Nentwig said that since last year, the "islands question" has become a card in Japan's domestic political fighting.

The Japanese government announced the "purchase" of Diaoyu Island and its affiliated Nan Xiaodao and Bei Xiaodao on Sept. 11, forcing China to take measures to protect its sovereignty, he said.

"It is clear that Japan has made an attempt to tamper the territorial results of World War II," Nentwig said.

"The memory of the aggression of Japanese militarism as Axis power is still fresh to many people in East and Southeast Asia, and it is strengthened in particular as many Japanese politicians, including leaders, showed little insight into their own history and even deny their war crimes in public," he said.

"Today we are witnessing a resurgence of aggressive arrogance of Japan, which stirs up bad memories of all its neighbors," he said.
