China wants to be left alone so they can feel better about their genocide.

Perhaps if China had not made Yasukuni visits a constant issue for years they might have had a point.

Well, Kishida rattled the cage & stuck it out there this week. So, how many persons from Hong Kong is Japan willing to take in and give full citizenship?

Sep 14, 2021: “Kishida vowed to “resolutely” stand up to China on important issues like security in the Taiwan Strait and Beijing's crackdown on dissent in Hong Kong.” -

Put up or shut up.

Then maybe china should stay out of Japanese, Vietnamese, Filipino, Indonesian, heck, most of asian territories and stop constructing man made islands.

What's that? A country well known for stealing IP and technology from other countries, is lecturing another country to not meddle in its affairs?

P1ss off, China.

"not to meddle in internal affairs" - a typical argumentative narrative used by today's Russia, the former USSR and China. But when they do it, it is not meddling in internal affairs.

China's internal affairs cannot allow any foreign interference. Japanese politicians should stop making an issue out of China," Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters.

Lijian is a PUNK that should be labeled persona non grata by the western nations as a warning to all Chinese officials who think wolf warrior BS actually works

China urges Japan's PM candidates not to meddle in internal affairs:

Can't stop them, because that is the only way any candidate could have a chance to claim the premiership.

And when a new one is at the helm, the master behind the scene would coerced them to confront China..

One serious question: is Japan still sending ‘aid’ to this garbage regime? If so, please stop immediately. China is the second largest largest economy and says that it want people to not interfere with their internal affairs. Fine! Cut all aid and let the Commies pay their own way.

To be sure, Kishida’s idea does seem like a waste of money.

China’s CCP authoritarians will never listen to Japan.

Let the people of Japan voice their opinions directly about the Chinese authoritarians instead.

Sadly what China says are internal issues are in some cases International issues like claiming territory in the South China sea. In addition most of the world considers Taiwan as independent and most definitely not part of the CCP's China.

In addition, no matter if internal or not, genocide in any form is frowned upon Internationally and will be commented upon and perhaps sanctions employed to stop such actions.

China comments on other nations when it suits them, it should not be surprised that other nations do the same thing when it suits THEM.

We can stop meddling by boycotting the genocide Olympics!

And by his own words is meddling in the internal affairs if another country. Hypocrisy, blatant and shameless, but what else do you expect from the CCP mafia?

Was delighted to read today that the chief CCP mouthpiece in the UK has been banned from the Palace of Westminster estate (parliament) as long as British MP’s are sanctioned by China.

China invading Taiwan is not an internal issue of China. Taiwan is free and independent, and Japan should stand firm with Taiwan against Chinese aggression. That would be in Japan's own interest too. If Taiwan falls, Okinawa would be next. Japan would then be bracketed by Russia in the north, and China in the south.

China is not going to invade Taiwan...the issue is just being used for political point scoring.

Every country has its dark side, first take care of your own affairs.

""Kishida said Monday that he will set up the post of special adviser to the prime minister on human rights issues if elected, apparently aiming to counter China's alleged human rights abuses in Xinjiang and its crackdown on Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement.""

NATO, also did it's share of Human Rights abuses is Iraq, and Afghanistan, will this "Special Adviser" look into these violations and abuses? and what will japan do to china anyways, this will be a useless post and a waste of money, talents, and energy.

Modern capitalism developed first in England back in the seventeenth and eighteenth century and the rest of Europe copied English technology. Sometimes it was literally stolen and other times arrangements were made to learn it or just copy it.

The U.S. as a fledgling country did that in relationship to the more advanced economy of the British Empire; the Germans copied the British then the Japanese copied Western Europe and the United States.

The copying has always gone on in multiple forms so what the Chinese are accused of doing is something that most of the accusers will find likewise in the past of their own countries or regions making this sort of criticism old fashioned.

If you are abusing your kids the police will show up and maybe arrest you. There are times when it is highly appropriate for outsiders to step up and become involved. The world was silent as Hitler attempted to exterminate the Jews. Have you learned nothing from history?

This is a very strange at an attempt of justification of Intellectual Property theft. I say an attempt, because it wasn't successful. Nothing in there actually justifies IP theft.
