BEIJING, March 2 (Xinhua) -- Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has lost credibility with the Chinese government and the Chinese people as well, a spokesman of the Chinese political advisory body said Sunday.

Calling Abe a "regional troublemaker ... playing a double game," Lyu Xinhua, spokesman for the second session of the 12th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), told a press conference that Abe's visit to the war-linked Yasukuni Shrine has seriously undermined the political foundation for Sino-Japanese relations.

The Yasukuni Shrine honors 14 convicted Class-A war criminals and other war-dead during the World War II.

Lyu said the Japanese leader on one hand talked about having a face-to-face dialogue with Chinese leaders. "On the other hand, in total disregard of China-Japan relationship and regional stability, he has compromised the interest of Japan's neighbors, and hurt the feelings of the people of Asian countries victimized in the WWII," he said.

Abe has also repeatedly created military tensions by expanding advanced weaponry and equipment, Lyu said.

"He has lost his credibility with the Chinese government and the Chinese people," he said.

Lyu said dialogues with China will only be possible after Abe corrects his mistake with credible actions, and puts an immediate end to all words and deeds that might jeopardize China-Japan relations and create regional tensions.

Noting an ongoing movement toward the Right in Japan's politics, he said future developments in Japan are a cause for concern.

"The Japanese people don't want to see Japan repeat its past mistakes and the international community will not allow Japan to turn back the wheels of history," Lyu said.
