Chinese FM spokesman criticizes Japanese challenge to war trial
font size    

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao on Thursday dismissed Japanese claims that the trial against Japanese war criminals from World War II was unjust.

"Any attempt to challenge this just trial will be unpopular and cannot succeed. Instead, it will be strongly condemned by the international community and the majority of the Japanese people," said Liu.

A foreign journalist asked Liu to comment on reports that free booklets in Chinese and Korean will be handed out to visitors of the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo, which say the trial, planned by the United Nations, that found the Japanese war criminals guilty, was one-sided.

More than two million Japanese war dead including 14 Class A war criminals are honored at the shrine.

"The trial by the International Military Tribunal for Far East against the Japanese war criminals has upheld justice and safeguarded the dignity of man," said Liu.

The trial had handed the criminals deserved punishments, the spokesman said.
