China rebuts Japan’s plea for atom bomb victim visit

Japan has put forth a proposal to the United Nations for world leaders to visit victims of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic explosions on the 70th anniversary of the tragedies. The Chinese foreign minister responded with “You ask China’s leaders to visit Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but first let me ask, when Japanese leaders will visit the Nanking massacre memorial?” More than 10 UN member countries, South Korea included, all agree with the Chinese foreign minister in his stance towards the Japanese. Because of this Chinese opposition, this proposal has yet to be passed.
