I would like to express my deep concern about the concealment of historical facts through the process of textbook screening.
In order for Japanese children to become responsible participants in a democratic society, and for the promotion of world peace and human rights, I believe that the Japanese aggressions and criminal actions of the past must be made known.
I believe that the approval of textbooks which distort the fact of the war is contrary to the international standards of a guarantee to the freedom of expression and the right to know the truth.
I look forward to the issuing of a decision which addresses the concerns of the international community.
