Tensions between Japan and its neighbors over historical issues have flared at the UN Security Council, with strong words from top envoys.
Chinese Ambassador Liu Jieyi said the Japanese prime minister's recent visit to Yasukuni shrine had closed the door to dialogue.
South Korea's envoy accused Japan of having a distorted view of history.
Japan said raising these issues at the UN did not help to reduce tensions.
