On May 14, the national separatist forces headed by Rebiya Kadeer held the so-called "fourth meeting of the World Uyghur Congress" in Japan. These separatists not only attack China but also visited the Yasukuni Shrine, a symbol of Japan's past militarism and its history of invasion of other countries.
Although China had negotiated with Japan for many times, Japanese Government still issued an entry visa to them. The spokesman of Chinese Foreign Ministry expressed strong dissatisfaction over this. Premier Wen Jiabao had also warned in his talks with Yoshihiko Noda that China hopes Japan can respect the core interests of China on the issue of Xinjiang.
What kind of forces in Japan colluded with the "World Uyghur Congress" and why did it choose to hold meeting in Japan this year?
In 2002, some Japanese right-wingers set the anniversary of the normalization of China-Japan relations on September 29 as "the Anti-Communist Party Day" and organized various anti-China activities. After that, they often make troubles every time the two governments hope to promote and improve the bilateral relations.
The supporter of the "World Uyghur Congress" this time is Takeo Hiranuma, the representative of the "Sunrise Party of Japan," a right-wing party out of power. Hiranuma is the adopted son of Hiranuma Kiichiro, the former Japanese Prime Minister and major criminal in the Second World War. Takeo Hiranuma beautifies the history of Japanese aggression, worships at Yasukuni Shrine, supports "Taiwan independence” and is closely related with Shintaro Ishihara. After the recession of "Taiwan independence” force, the Japanese right-wingers continue to make use of other national separatist forces.
