China expressed firm opposition to some Japanese senior politicians over the Yasukuni shrine issue and has lodged solemn representations with Japan, urging the country to completely draw a line under militarism, according to the Chinese Foreign Ministry and Chinese Embassy in Japan on Sunday, right after Suga sent a ritual offering and some cabinet members visited the shrine on the day that marks the 76th anniversary of Japan’s surrender in World War II.
