Abe urges South Korea to honor comfort women accord

NHK highlighted press remarks by Prime Minister Abe this morning dismissing ROK President Moon’s call for Japan to take additional measures to alleviate the suffering of former comfort women. On Seoul’s negative assessment of the 2015 comfort women agreement, the premier said: “The agreement is a commitment made between two nations. It is a universal principle in the international community that bilateral agreements are upheld. It is absolutely unacceptable that South Korea is unilaterally asking for additional actions.” He added that the Japanese side has been implementing the promises it made in the pact in good faith, asking the Moon administration to do the same. Other networks broadcast similar stories.
