Minister: S. Korea angry about Japanese PM's shrine visit

Published: 12.26.13, 08:06 / Israel News

South Korea said on Thursday Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit to Tokyo's Yasukuni Shrine for war dead was a deplorable and anachronistic act that damaged ties between the two countries.

 

"We cannot withhold regret and anger over the visit," said Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Yoo Jin-ryong. For many South Koreans the shrine is a reminder of Japan's brutal occupation of the Korean Peninsula from 1910 to 1945. (Reuters)
