China condemns Japanese city's kamikaze letter plan

BEIJING--China expressed outrage Monday at a proposal by a Japanese city to list letters written by World War II suicide pilots on a United Nations register — alongside Anne Frank's diary.

Minami-Kyushu last week filed an application to include the Japanese kamikaze pilots' farewell letters on a UNESCO world memory list, media including public broadcaster NHK have reported.

The museum wants to win registration in 2015, "to forever hand down the letters to generations to come as a treasure of human life," it says on its website.

"This is an effort to beautify Japan's history of militaristic aggression, and challenge the victory of the World Anti-Fascist War and the postwar international order," Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said when asked about the letters.
