China has said that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is no longer welcome in China after he visited the controversial Yasukuni war shrine.
"The Chinese people do not welcome him. Now, Abe needs to admit his mistakes to the government and people of China, cut loose from the past and make a new start," said Qin Gang, China's foreign ministry spokesman.
Abe visited the Tokyo shrine last week and sparked anger from China and both Koreas.
