S. Korea Urges Japan Not to Damage Sex Slavery Agreement

South Korea has urged Japan to refrain from verbiage and deeds damaging to the spirit and purpose of the bilateral agreement on Japan’s wartime sexual slavery.
Seoul’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Cho June-hyuck made the remarks on Wednesday during a news briefing, calling on Japan to act on its promise to restore the honor and dignity of the victims and heal their wounds.
A Japanese delegation denied coercion in mobilizing sex slaves during World War II at a United Nations session in Geneva on Tuesday.
Deputy Foreign Minister Shinsuke Sugiyama reportedly told the Committee on Elimination of Discrimination against Women under the United Nations' Human Rights Council that there were no documents confirming that the Japanese government or army forced comfort women into sex slavery.
