China to present statue of Sun Yat-sen to Nagasaki

The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and the State Council’s Information Office announced that China would give a bronze statue of Sun Yat-sen, Shokichi Umeya, and his wife to Nagasaki Prefecture. During his life, Umeya built four statues of Sun Yat-sen and gave them to China.

“The statue of Sun Yat-sen and his Japanese friends will be not only a return gift for Umeya’s statues to China, but also a token of appreciation to the Japanese people who endeavored for China’s revolution and the two countries’ friendly relations,” said Ji Peiding, the vice director of the China Human Rights Development Foundation.
