Calls growing in South Korea for “protecting” comfort woman memorial in Busan

Asahi wrote that university students in Busan on Wednesday launched a group intended to “protect” a comfort woman statue installed in front of the Japanese Consulate General. The article projected that as calls are steadily mounting in South Korea for nullifying the comfort women pact with Japan, the comfort women standoff in Busan may become prolonged.

In a related story, Sankei took up press remarks made yesterday by an ROK governor whose jurisdiction covers the Liancourt Rocks, in which he said that it is not appropriate to erect a comfort woman memorial on the contested islets even though they are South Korea’s inherent territory.
