There has been a dangerous escalation of tensions between Japan and China recently. In a nuclear era if a war erupts between these two powerful Asian powers it is likely the entire world would come down in ashes. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo is trying to cool the flames of discord with China by clarifying his recent
controversial remarks about World War I, reported The Japan Times on Jan. 24, 2014.

Earlier in the week Abe compared the unstable relations between Japan and China to those of Britain and Germany prior to World War I. Due to fears the foreign media may have misinterpreted these remarks to mean Abe sees war between Japan and China as being inevitable, he has come forward to make it clear this is not what he means. Abe says what he wanted to convey is that a war between Japan and China is not at all possible because it would cause devastation between the two countries and to the entire world.

Abe has said he sees sees World War I echoes in Japan-China tensions, reported Reuters. However, he has gone on to say Japan and China should avoid repeating the past mistakes of Britain and Germany, who fought each other in World War I in spite of strong economic ties. Abe made these comments while speaking on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The entire world is now watching developments between Japan and China carefully.
