Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has sought to address the barrage of international criticism that has come his way over his recent visit to the controversial Yasukuni war shrine, saying he will continue fulfilling his responsibility and role as the nation's leader.
In an interview with Japanese TV network BS Fuji on Wednesday, Abe said that, by visiting the shrine, the hearts of many families of Japan's war dead have been healed.
Responding to Washington's official statement expressing its disappointment over his visit to the shrine, where Class-A war criminals are also honored Abe said he could clear up what he called "the misunderstanding" once he explains his stance to U.S. officials.
