Osaka chief takes issue with comfort woman memorial in San Francisco

Sankei focused on press remarks made yesterday by Osaka Mayor Yoshimura, who said that if the San Francisco authorities decide to condone the comfort woman statue built there recently by local Chinese citizens, he will repeal the sister-city arrangement with the U.S. city. According to the daily, the mayor met with Ambassador Hagerty on the same day and asked for his support so that the San Francisco authorities will not condone the memorial by saying: “I will have no option but to conduct a fundamental review of the sister city arrangement if San Francisco allows it to stand in public space.”
