The remarks were made by Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang at a daily press briefing when asked to comment on Abe sending ritual offerings to the Yasukuni Shrine earlier that day.

The Yasukuni Shrine honors Class-A Japanese war criminals from World War II who were directly responsible for its past aggression, Lu said, adding that China always firmly opposes Japan's war-related wrongdoings.

"We urge Japan to squarely face up to and reflect upon its invasion history, and win trust from its Asian neighbors and the international community through concrete actions," Lu added.
