China's Foreign Minister has refused to apologize for sometimes violent anti-Japanese protests, and he says Japan is to blame for hurting the feelings of the Chinese people. Li Zhaoxing told his Japanese counterpart, Nobutaka Machimura, in Beijing Sunday that China has never done anything that wronged the Japanese people. Instead, Mr. Li criticized Tokyo's "treatment of history" in allegedly downplaying World War Two-era atrocities. Japan's Kyodo news agency quoted Mr. Machimura as saying China's refusal to apologize is "unfortunate." Japan has accused China of not doing enough to prevent the violence. In the latest protests Sunday, thousands of Chinese demonstrated in Hong Kong, Shenzhen and other cities. Protesters have also denounced Tokyo's bid for a permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council.
