Japanese MPs fuel war shrine row
The group, which includes leaders of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, visits the shrine regularly.
A meeting between the Chinese and Japanese foreign ministers to discuss a possible summit is now in doubt. China's Li Zhaoxing said the shrine visit had"severely damaged" relations between the two countries."The Chinese government and Chinese people express strong anger," he said in a statement on the ministry's website. A South Korean spokesman said on Monday that President Roh Moo-hyun was unlikely to meet Mr Koizumi for a summit later in the year.
