BEIJING, Feb. 10 (Xinhua) -- The international community needs to be alarmed by Japan's right-wing moves and resolutely safeguard historical justice, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said on Monday.

Hua Chunying said at a regular press briefing that China noticed the remarks of a Japanese media official on the atomic bomb attacks on Japan and the United States' response.

Naoki Hyakuta, a board member of Japan's national broadcaster NHK, recently said Americans staged the post-war trial of Japanese leaders to cover up their own war crimes, including the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. A U.S. Embassy spokesman called the charges preposterous and expressed hope that people in positions of responsibility in Japan would avoid comments that inflame tensions in the region.

Hua said Japan's recent false statements on historical issues aimed at whitewashing Japanese militarist aggression in the past and challenging the results of World War II as well as the post-war international order.

People should always be alarmed by this history, Hua said, noting that Japan's right-wing political force is on a retrograde track regarding historical issues and has adverse impacts on regional peace and stability.

She emphasized that the international community should be highly alarmed and resolutely safeguard historical justice, the post-war international order and regional peace and stability.

Hua also said that Japanese leaders' recent mistakes on historical issues have provoked conflict between Japan and the victims of World War II, including China and the Republic of Korea.

It is clear that Japanese leaders are running contrary to the trend of world peace and stability, a move which has been opposed by the international community, according to the spokeswoman.

China hopes all people who love peace and prize justice can work together to safeguard the results of World War II as well as world stability, she added.
