外文标题：Chemical weapons abandoned in China to be destroyed
BEIJING: China and Japan will destroy over 3 lakh pieces of chemical weapons abandoned by Japanese forces in northeast China at the end of World War II.
The trial destruction will take place on Monday in the Harbaling area of China's Jilin Province, where the largest amount of weapons are buried, an estimated 330,000 pieces, Chinese foreign ministry said on Sunday.
This marks a new stage in disposal of the weapons which will be decisive for the destruction of all of them, it said.
Japan had abandoned at least two million tonnes of chemical weapons at about 40 sites in 15 Chinese provinces at the end of World War II, most of them in the three northeast provinces of Heilongjiang, Jilin and Liaoning.
Abandoning these weapons was one of the several crimes during Japan's invasion of China.
Though the war has been over for decades, the weapons still pose huge threats to Chinese people, property and environment, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
Nice, now perhaps this can form a solid step to reconciliation between the two Asian neighbours.
Don't destroy them, just explode them to bring China in its right place.

Whats the need of chemical when you have the NUCLEAR. They are just making the space to accommodate new nuclear piles.
