Pyongyang, November 22 (KCNA) -- Recently, Tokyo Metropolis of Japan prohibited the screening of video dealing with the massacre of Koreans, committed at the time of the great Kanto quake, at an exhibition.

The governor of the metropolis justified the prohibition, asserting that the video "does not match the purport of the exhibition".

This is a manifestation of the sinister intention to cover up Japan's past crimes at any cost and stir up the extreme chauvinism against the Korean nation that has rooted in the Japanese society.

Historically, Japan had committed untold crimes against the Korean nation. Among them is the massacre of Koreans that was committed with the earthquake in Tokyo, Yokohama and other Kanto areas on September 1, 1923 as an occasion. This atrocity is still now shocking the world people.

At that time, the Japanese authorities misled the public opinion, asserting that the quake was caused by Koreans, and cooked up the "rumor that Koreans were planning a riot". Not content with this, they ordered samurais to kill all Koreans without reference to age and sex walking on roads or hiding in houses and other places.

Not only the army and the police but also the vicious servile organizations such as the "ultra-right organization" and the "young people's association" of Japan were involved in the mass killings. Consequently, as many as over 23 000 innocent Koreans were cruelly massacred in a little over ten days.

The bloody mass slaughter against humanity was not a spontaneous accident or individual terrorism planned by some high-ranking officials but a product of the Japanese government's out-and-out policy of exterminating the Korean nation.

They made the whole of Japan a theater of massacres of Koreans in the last century with the great Kanto quake as an opportunity. Such hysterics of the brutes against other nation has been inherited by their descendents in the new century, too.

When there were great earthquakes in Kumamoto of Kyushu in April 2016, the Japanese reactionaries spread the rumors "that a Korean in Kumamoto poured poison into the water well and the Japanese in Kumamoto should take precautions against a riot of Koreans" in an attempt to create a climate of the past horrible mass killings.

Witnessed in Japan were incidents of firing a pistol at the Central Hall of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) and destroying a Korean kindergarten in Tsurumi, an unfair discrimination in applying the tuition-free program for senior high schools and the "program for free education and upbringing of children", the measure taken by the Saitama City authorities to forbid the distribution of masks to Korean kindergarteners, and the fascist atrocities committed against the institutions of Chongryon and Koreans in Japan over the DPRK's just measure for self-defence. All those facts go to prove that the Japanese reactionaries' inveterate hostility towards the Korean nation has reached an extreme.

The Japanese reactionaries are the sworn enemy of the Korean nation as they have committed another crime against it, far from apologizing and reflecting on their disgraceful past crimes.

The disgusting hysterics of the hateful enemy further hardens the will of all Koreans to settle accounts with Japan.
