FM Hayashi comments on 80th anniversary of Pearl Harbor attack 

Mainichi wrote that Foreign Minister Hayashi commented on Tuesday on the 80th anniversary of the Imperial Japanese Navy’s attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. The foreign minister said: “At the time, Japan challenged the international order by trying to resolve a diplomatic and economic impasse through force. Learning lessons from this experience, Japan has maintained the principle that any conflict must be resolved peacefully and diplomatically. Although Japan fought a fierce battle with the United States, the two countries have now established one of the strongest alliances in the world.” According to the daily, the foreign minister, apparently with China’s increasing hegemonic moves in mind, said: “We are facing a challenge to the international order. We will further strengthen cooperation with like-minded countries to maintain and strengthen the international order.”
