The Japanese daily in a statement on Monday said it had no intention of defaming Park and expects Korean authorities to arrive at a "fair decision based on freedom of the press and freedom of expression."
China reacted swiftly, describing Mr Abe's actions as "an effort to glorify the Japanese militaristic history of external invasion and colonial rule... and to challenge the outcome of the Second World War"
