China Slams Mitsubishi’s ‘Selective’ Wartime Slave Labor Apology

Mitsubishi Materials Corp. should expand its apology for using U.S. prisoners of war as forced laborers during World War II to include captured Chinese soldiers, state-run Xinhua News Agency said in a commentary.

By addressing only U.S. prisoners, just two of whom are still alive, the company “made a selective and hypocritical apology,” according to the article published Monday. A spokesman for the company wasn’t immediately available to comment on Tuesday.
