China accuses Japanese leaders of denying history





China's Foreign Ministry said late Tuesday the Japanese government was trying to deny Japan's history of militarism as China and other countries mark the 60th anniversary of the World War II surrender this year.

Ministry spokesman Kong Quan said in a statement the Japanese government had taken action to water down its history of militarism prior to 1945. Japanese forces occupied parts of China from 1931 through the end of World War II. (Kyodo News)
