外文标题：China slams Japan for lack of World War II contrition
German contrition over World War II stands in contrast to Japan's failure to reflect on its past, the official newspaper of China's ruling Communist Party said on Sunday, following war commemorations in Moscow.
China-Japan relations are plagued by China's bitter memories of Japan's occupation of parts of the country before and during World War II. Ties have also chilled in recent years over territorial rows and mutual mistrust over Japan's bolder security policies and China's military assertiveness.
"In the past several decades, Germany has never halted on the path of self-analysis and self-criticism of its own guilt," the paper said, citing former German chancellor Willy Brandt kneeling at a Warsaw memorial in 1970 and current chancellor Angela Merkel's past remarks that the country had an "everlasting responsibility" for Nazi crimes.
"The German people's profound acknowledgment of war crimes stands in contrast to the dangerous trend in Japan's right wing," the paper said.

China will do any thing to demean Japan like Japanese leaders visit to yasukoni shrine in Tokyo,comfort women issue ,sea boundary and mainly now for four islands.They have nothing else to do and just want to dig out old wounds and create perpetual animosity with the nation who does not want to do or listen to them what they want. They have problems with many other nations too and keep digging their faults and think they are only the saint left in world and can not do any thing wrong.They have forgotten that same Japan had ruled on them during world war second and issued their own currency yens.Chinese will not stop their propaganda against Japan and even for our nation until they get what they want which they know they are not going to get it.
