South Korea has warned Japan over its continued denial of the forced nature of its wartime sex slavery during World War II.
Seoul's Foreign Ministry on Sunday addressed the Japanese government's report to the UN Committee on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women late last year.
In a statement, the South Korean government urged Japan not to do anything that undermines their settlement of the sex slavery issue last year.
South Korea stressed it is an "undeniable historical fact" that Japan used coercion to recruit what are euphemistically called "comfort women" during its colonial occupation of Korea.
According to the Web site of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Japan conveyed its denial of the coercive nature of its wartime sex slavery to the UN committee.
