South Korea expresses regret over Japanese PM sending offering to war-linked shrine

South Korea expressed regret over Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida’s ritual offering to the Yasukuni Shrine during its spring festival. The South Korean foreign ministry stated its deep disappointment and regret, emphasizing that the shrine glorifies Japan’s war of aggression and honors war criminals. South Korea urged Japanese leaders to confront history, demonstrate sincere remorse, and work towards future-oriented relations. The Yasukuni Shrine, located in Tokyo, honors 14 convicted Class-A Japanese war criminals from World War II, and its significance has been a point of contention in Japan’s relations with its neighbors.
