Sarkozy No apology for the past

Sarkozy said on 26th, in his speech at Dakar, the capital of Senegal, that slavery was " crime against a humanity", and French colonialism was "a big mistake", but he reject repentance, .....saying nobody can demand the new generation the compensation for the past that the older generation committed


 Sankei (cash)

For some reason, so far there is no English aritcles on it but his speech toward Algeria on July 10.

What Japanese politicians should learn is that they should first say that the invasions and the colonization were wrong and leave the details to the civilians.
What western media should note is Japan has a relatively good record on the compensations and apology among the nations who has invaded, intervened, colonized other nations.
