Nagoya's sister city, Nanjing, has severed its sibling relationship after Nagoya's mayor said he doubted that the Japanese Army’s 1937 Nanjing Massacre actually took place. Mayor Takashi Kawamura told a visiting delegation of Chinese Communist Party officials that he was skeptical. In a statement, Kawamura said: "there are many opinions about the so-called Nanjing incident ... I have said I want to have a debate with people from Nanjing."
