Pyongyang, August 18 (KCNA) -- Japanese Prime Minister Kishida offered a tribute to the Yasukuni Shrine on the day of Japan's defeat in the Second World War, and members of the new Cabinet including the minister of Economy, Trade and Industry and persons concerned of the Liberal Democratic Party paid a group visit to the shrine where remains of top class war criminals are interred. They praised the criminals, who ignited a war of aggression in the past and slaughtered lots of Korean people and other Asians, as "those who devoted their lives to national policy" and expressed "gratitude" and "condolences" to them. It is the open praise for militarist departed soul and a dangerous behavior inciting revanchism and wild ambition for reinvasion. Japan, the war criminal state and the defeated country in the Second World War, should practice self-control on the day of its disgraceful defeat as never before. It is obliged to reflect deeply upon its past history of aggression and make a sincere apology and reparation for the crimes committed by it against humankind. However, the Japanese reactionaries who have ground their teeth with grudge of the defeat of their country generation after generation competitively have vied with each other in visiting the Yasukuni Shrine on the day of the defeat and pledged revenge, calling back the departed soul of the top war criminals. This is an intolerable criminal act of rubbing salt into the wounds of the Korean people and other Asians who suffered indescribable misfortune and pain under the fascist colonial rule of the Japanese imperialists in the past century and the downright challenge to the humankind's demand for Japan's past liquidation. The Japanese reactionaries' persistent visit to the Yasukuni Shrine, the spiritual tool and symbol of Japanese militarism, is aimed to provide a favorable condition for reinvasion by turning the Japanese society into the extremely reactionary one and taming the Japanese people to be thorough militarists. Militarism in Japan is not a mere specter. Militarism has been infiltrated into all fields of social life including politics, economy, military and culture by the ultra-right politicians, making all people seized by the enthusiasm for invasion and revenge. The Japanese reactionaries openly resort to the moves for the revision to the constitution for legalizing the existence of the "Self-Defence Forces" despite the opposition of the international community, the SDF's overseas advance and the dangerous arms build-up including the possession of the "ability to attack enemy bases". This is unthinkable without the Japanese society's lurch to the Right and militarization. Herein lies the reason why the international community calls into question and incriminates the Japanese politicians' visit to the shrine. Today, Japan's reinvasion is becoming a reality, not hypothesis. Now, the international community is closely watching every move of Japan, the dangerous aggressive force in Asia. Though Japan is hell-bent on its moves for inciting revanchism and wild ambition for reinvasion through the visit to the Yasukuni Shrine, it will meet isolation and ruin only. Japan should behave with prudence, well aware of the consequences to be entailed by its reckless moves.
