Japan Unqualified for Permanent Membership of United Nations Security Council

The Japanese foreign minister has again laid bare the Japanese wild ambition to become a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) at the recent High-Level Meeting of the General Assembly to Commemorate the Seventy-Fifth Anniversary of the United Nations.

Talking about the need of reforming UNSC in his video message delivered to the meeting, the foreign minister asserted that “Japan is prepared to contribute to achieving a peaceful international community if it becomes a permanent member.”

The Japanese attempt to become a permanent member of UNSC mandated to ensure international peace and security is a mockery and an intolerable insult to the international justice and the conscience of humanity.

Instead of flattering the international community with honeyed words such as “contribution” to peace, Japan should better make a thoughtful analysis of the reason why such repeated words aren’t arresting anyone’s interest for decades.

Japan committed the gravest crime against humanity, invading the Asian countries including our country and provoking the Pacific War in the first half of the last century, but it is dodging its state responsibility still now, second decade of the new century, all of which speak enough to the imprudence of Japan.

After illegally occupying our country, Japan slaughtered over a million Koreans, forcibly kidnapped and drafted more than 8.4 million young and middle-aged Koreans and turned 200,000 Korean women into sexual slaves for the Japanese army.

It is a well-known fact that all the money now lavished by Japan on several countries was the accumulation from plundering all of human and material resources by means of aggression and war in the past, and furthermore, from getting “golden shower” by taking advantage of the Korean War.

Despite such a bloodstained history of aggression, Japan is resorting to the distortion and embellishment of its past and dreaming a wild dream of reinvasion, far from making honest reflection, apology and compensation.

Its typical example is that the Japanese cabinet ministers are praising notorious A-class criminals of the World War II as “heroes” and “cornerstone of peace” and staging a farce of thronging the Yasukuni Shrine in defiance of strong opposition and protests of the world.

Japan, which is desperately evading to liquidate its past crime and instead only adding more and more to its heinous crime, cannot become a permanent member of UNSC, nor does it have the qualifications to talk about it.

Japan should first know the general principle that an ivory can never grow in the foul mouth of a dirty dog.
