China Voice: Intransigence on history, poison for future

2015-03-10

BEIJING, March 8 (Xinhua) -- Intransigence on history costs the future of not only Japan, but also the region and even the world.

A nation does not deeply reflect on its past, particularly for periods stained with atrocities and blood, would hardly win respect from others.

A nation's image should be built on not only its self perception, but also the judgement made by others. Why have so many countries blamed Japan for its reflection on the history in World War II? Why are some economies even willing to sacrifice business opportunities before getting a sincere apology from Japan?
