米国務長官らが献花へ=千鳥ヶ淵墓苑、外国高官で初
http://www.jiji.com/jc/zc?k=201310/2013100200964

 米国のケリー国務長官とヘーゲル国防長官は3日午前、東京・三番町の千鳥ケ淵戦没者墓苑を訪れ献花する。同墓苑関係者によると、外国の高官による訪問は初めて。献花は米国の意向。 
 1959年に完成した同墓苑は、身元不明の戦没者や民間人の犠牲者の遺骨が納められている国立の施設。A級戦犯が合祀(ごうし)され、閣僚による参拝が中国などとの対立要因となっている靖国神社とは異なり、宗教色はない。(2013/10/02-22:26)

【10月3日 AFP】(一部更新)来日中のジョン・ケリー(John Kerry)国務長官とチャック・ヘーゲル(Chuck Hagel)国防長官は3日、東京都千代田区の千鳥ヶ淵戦没者墓苑を訪れ、献花した。安倍晋三(Shinzo Abe)首相が5月に訪米した際、靖国神社を米国のアーリントン国立墓地(Arlington National Cemetery)になぞらえたことに対するけん制とみられる。

 ケリー国務長官とヘーゲル国防長官は外務・防衛担当閣僚による安全保障協議委員会(2プラス2)のため来日中。千鳥ヶ淵戦没者墓苑によると、今回の訪問は日本の招待ではなく米国側の意向によるもので、同墓苑を訪問した外国の要人としては1979年のアルゼンチン大統領以来、最高位の政府高官という。

 同行した米国防総省高官は記者団に対し、千鳥ヶ淵戦没者墓苑はアーリントン国立墓地に「最も近い存在」だと説明。ケリー国務長官とヘーゲル国防長官は「日本の防衛相がアーリントン国立墓地で献花するのと同じように」戦没者に哀悼の意を示したと述べた。

 安倍首相は5月、訪米に際して米外交専門誌「フォーリンアフェアーズ(Foreign Affairs)」に対し、米バージニア(Virginia)州にあるアーリントン国立墓地を引き合いに出し、靖国神社は国のために命をささげた人々を慰霊する施設であり、日本の指導者が参拝するのは極めて自然で、世界のどの国でも行っていることだと述べていた。(c)AFP

 

Kerry visit to Tokyo cemetery seen as US message over Yasukuni Shrine

John Kerry's laying of wreath at war graves cemetery in Tokyo seen as an example to hosts, whose visits to war shrine stir regional tensions

US Secretary of State John Kerry laid a wreath at a Tokyo cemetery yesterday, in an apparent American attempt to nudge Japan away from lionising its controversial Yasukuni Shrine.

Kerry and Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel became the most senior foreign dignitaries to pay their respects at Chidori ga Fuchi, a cemetery near Tokyo's Imperial Palace, since the Argentine president in 1979.

What's worrying America most is the fierce row among Japan, South Korea and China over the Yasukuni issue. Visiting a more neutral place may be a message from Americans

The visit had been instigated by the US and had not come about as a result of a Japanese invitation, a cemetery official said.

US defence officials said the cemetery was Japan's "closest equivalent" to the US military's Arlington National Cemetery.

That view contradicts hawkish Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who has likened Yasukuni, where 14 "Class A" war criminals are among the 2.5 million enshrined, to the US national cemetery in Virginia.

During a visit to the US in May, he told Foreign Affairs magazine that the shrine, seen throughout East Asia as a symbol of Japan's militarism, was a tribute to those "who lost their lives in the service of their country".

"I think it's quite natural for a Japanese leader to offer prayer for those who sacrificed their lives for their country, and I think this is no different from what other world leaders do," he said.

Abe, who was also prime minister from 2006 to 2007, has stayed away from the shrine thus far, amid angry denunciations by China and South Korea of visits by his ministers.

Around 100 lawmakers, including three cabinet ministers, went to the shrine on August 15 this year.

While the prime minister stayed away, he sent an offering with an aide.

Unlike Arlington, Yasukuni's caretakers promote a view of history that is controversial even at home, with the accompanying Yushukan museum staunchly defending much of Japan's wartime record.

A US official said Kerry and Hagel were paying tribute at Chidori ga Fuchi in the same way "Japanese defence ministers regularly lay wreaths at Arlington".

Kerry and Hagel signed a guest book at a small pavilion, and placed flowers on a big ceramic coffin located above an underground ossuary in which remains are kept.

Seki Tomoda, an expert on international politics, said the wreath-laying could be Washington's attempt to help East Asia overcome the obstacle caused by the Yasukuni issue, by conferring legitimacy and respectability on Chidori ga Fuchi.

"What's worrying America most is the fierce row among Japan, South Korea and China over the Yasukuni issue," he said.

"Visiting a more neutral place may be a message from Americans ... they want the three countries to ease their confrontation."

Chidori ga Fuchi was established to house the remains of unidentified Japanese who died during the second world war.

Tokyo (AFP) - US Secretary of State John Kerry laid a wreath at a Tokyo cemetery Thursday, in an apparent American attempt to nudge Japan away from lionising its controversial Yasukuni Shrine.

A US official told media Kerry and Hagel were paying tribute at Chidori ga Fuchi in the same way that "Japanese defence ministers regularly lay wreaths at Arlington".

"This memorial is the closest equivalent. It honours Japanese soldiers, civilians, and support personnel killed on WWII battlefields but whose remains were never recovered by their families. It is a gesture of reconciliation and respect."

Kerry and Hagel signed a guest book at a small pavilion, and placed flowers on a big ceramic coffin located above an underground ossuary in which remains are kept.

Seki Tomoda, an expert on international politics and diplomacy, said the wreath-laying could be Washington's attempt to help East Asia overcome the obstacle caused by the Yasukuni issue, by conferring legitimacy and respectability on Chidori ga Fuchi.

"What's worrying America most is the fierce row among Japan, South Korea and China over the Yasukuni issue," he told AFP.

"Visiting a more neutral place may be a message from Americans... that they want the three countries to ease their confrontation.

"Yasukuni, unlike Arlington, is a religious facility... I think it's impossible that Hagel or any other American leader would visit Yasukuni. Chidori ga fuchi was an option (for the US) in order to send a message."

Chidori ga Fuchi National Cemetery was established in 1959 to house the remains of unidentified Japanese who died overseas during World War II.

The Tokyo memorial, maintained by the environment ministry, honours 358,260 dead, mainly soldiers, whose remains have been returned to Japan, but also some civilians who died overseas.

The prime minister customarily lays a wreath at the cemetery ahead of the formal Japanese service of remembrance held at a large hall in Tokyo.
