CHANGCHUN, Sept. 18 (ChinaMil) -- "Reserve a Pure Land for the people - Exhibition on the Disposal of Japan's Abandoned Chemical Weapons in China", kicked off in Changchun, northeast China, on September 17, 2016.
The exhibition was cosponsored by the Office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Disposal of Japan's Abandoned Chemical Weapons in China and the Office of the Ministry of National Defense for Disposal of Japan's Abandoned Chemical Weapons in China.
Japan's abandoned chemical weapons in China reveal one of the serious crimes committed by Japanese militarism.
Statistics show that during Japan's aggression against China, Japanese troops launched numerous chemical attacks to Chinese soldiers and civilians in 19 Chinese provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions, and the time, location and casualty of 1,241 attacks were accurately recorded, which had caused Chinese injuries and deaths of more than 200,000.
The Japanese troops' chemical war in China employed chemical weapons at the most frequent and extensive level, and lasted for the longest time in the history of human warfare after the World War I.
To this day, Japan's abandoned chemical weapons in China are still seriously threatening and endangering people's life, property and the ecological environment in relevant regions in China.
With a large number of full and accurate historical data and about 1,000 pictures and physical exhibits, this exhibition exposes the Japanese invaders' crime of using chemical weapons.
The exhibition displays the real scene of the disposal of Japan's abandoned chemical weapons, and showcases the fearlessness, selfless contribution and determination of "reserving a pure Land for the people" of the staff members who participate in the disposal of Japan's abandoned chemical weapons.
The Exhibition on the Disposal of Japan's Abandoned Chemical Weapons in China will last till October 18.
