"We will contribute to world peace and prosperity by sincerely tackling a variety of challenges, including the issue of poverty, which could become a hotbed of conflicts", the premier said.

Japan is marking the 72nd anniversary of the country's surrender in World War II on August 15, 1945.

"We intend to keep this immovable policy firmly, throughout the ages, while facing history with humility".

Masahiko Shibayama, an aide to Abe, made the donation on his behalf.

"Upon direction from (LDP) President Abe, I offered my condolences to the ancestors who sacrificed their lives in the war and reaffirmed my commitment to eternal peace", the aide told reporters.

TOKYO-Amid a welter of conflicting views over North Korea, there is one reliable standby.

The conversation between the two leaders took place following North Korea intimating it could fire missiles into waters off Guam in the western pacific.

Abe apparently wanted to avoid triggering criticism from China and South Korea at a time when he needs their cooperation to deal with the North Korean missile crisis. But receives significant criticism for also enshrining senior military and political figures who have been convicted of war crimes by an global tribunal.

Arsenal vs. Leicester City
But perhaps the answer that baffled Wenger the most was when the German defender said his favourite pet animal was a guinea pig. The £52 million signing became the first Arsenal player to score on his Premier League debut since Thomas Vermaelen in 2009.

On North Korea's recent string of missile launches and heated rhetoric, Otsuji said he was reminded anew that "war must be avoided at any cost".
