The No War Resolution Issue

To the disappointment of peace-loving people in Asia and Japan, the Japanese government adopted a No War Resolution without making a formal apology to its victims during the War. Japan missed a golden chance to reconcile with its neighbours.
We sincerely recommend to our viewers, especially Chinese viewers, Hajime Takano's essay on No War Resolution.
