Lessons of war Japan should pass on to next generation

Abe's 70th-anniversary statement lays clear the issues

Seventy-five years have passed since that fateful summer day when Japanese Emperor Hirohito, through a radio address, announced to the people that the country was accepting unconditional surrender, an act that closed the curtain on World War II.

On this anniversary, we express our condolences to the many people who have fallen, both domestic and foreign, and renew our commitment to peace.
