Joe McDonald: China Premier Questions Japan Council Seat

From AP, via Guardian Unlimited:

China’s premier warned Japan on Tuesday that it isn’t ready for a permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council until it faces up to its history of aggression and wins its neighbors’ trust.

Premier ’s comments were the most direct Chinese declaration yet on Japan’s possible Security Council membership. Tokyo “needs to face up to history squarely” before aspiring to a bigger global role, Wen said during an official visit to India.
