Japan rebuts UN panel recommendation for reviewing comfort women pact

Most papers reported that the GOJ on Monday released a document rebutting a recommendation submitted to the ROK government recently by the UN Committee on Torture regarding the 2015 comfort women agreement with Japan. The Japanese document stated that it is wrong for the UN panel to describe the victims as “sex slaves.” It also emphasized that the accord was warmly welcomed by the international community, including then UN Secretary General Ban, as a “final and irreversible settlement” of the history dispute.
