MOFA provides LDP with information on comfort women statues overseas

Asahi wrote that MOFA reported at an LDP meeting on Wednesday that a total of 15 statues symbolizing the comfort women have been erected in the United States and three other nations. According to the MOFA data, such statues have been installed at 12 sites in six states, including New Jersey and California, as well as Canada, Australia, and Germany. MOFA also reported that seven local assemblies in the United States have adopted resolutions related to the establishment of comfort women statues. According to the paper, some of the LDP participants expressed the opinion that it is necessary for Japanese embassies and consulates to urge local communities not to approve moves to establish such statues.
