Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has reportedly sent a cash donation to a controversial war shrine as the country marked the anniversary of its defeat in World War II.
A member of Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) said Abe had sent the monetary offering this year in his capacity as president of the party, not as prime minister.
His decision not to attend the shrine again this year comes as Tokyo sought cooperation with Beijing and Seoul over North Korea’s nuclear and missile programmes.Do you ever witness anything interesting or exciting?
