Main points of ROK FM’s statement on agreement with Japan on comfort women issue

Main points of the statement by Foreign Minister Kang Kyung Wha on the Japan-ROK agreement:


  • The agreement is official, so the ROK will not seek to renegotiate with Japan.
  • The ROK government will cover the 1 billion yen paid out by Japan to the Reconciliation and Healing Foundation and will discuss with the Japanese government what to do with its contribution.
  • It is hoped that Japan will make voluntary efforts to restore the honor and dignity of the former comfort women.
  • An agreement that does not adequately reflect the involved parties’ wishes cannot be a genuine solution to the problem.
