SKorea’s Park to visit China for WWII anniversary event


SEOUL: South Korea said Thursday that President Park Geun-Hye would attend upcoming celebrations in Beijing to mark China’s victory over Japan in World War II — an anniversary that most world leaders look set to shun. China has pushed hard for a decent turnout of foreign leaders, but many seem concerned at the prospect of a parade that could marry a showcase for the military prowess of an increasingly assertive China with overt anti-Japanese sentiment. South Korea and China share a historical antipathy towards Japan, whose legacy of military aggression left both countries deeply scarred.
