Taiwan urges Japan to face up to history





Taiwan's Foreign Ministry on Monday called on Japan to face up to history following Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi's visit to the war-linked Yasukuni Shrine despite fierce protests from neighboring countries.

"Taiwan and Japan have enjoyed amicable relations. We still hope that Japan can squarely face its World War II history and to look into the future with proactive thinking," ministry spokesman Michel Lu said.
