Law of War

A senior Chinese diplomat explained why China agreed to the disposal in China of the chemical weapons abandoned by Japan during World War II. He said that, out of safety concerns, China agreed to the destruction of the weapons in China on the condition that Japan undertook to abide by the law in China and ensure human and environmental safety. He also complained about the slow progress in Japan's disposal of the abandoned weapons. He pointed out that, while 37,499 weapons had been recovered so far, Japan had not destroyed any one of them.
