South Korean minister criticizes comfort women accord

Asahi wrote that South Korea’s Minister of Gender Equality and Family Chung Hyun-back criticized the 2015 comfort women agreement with Japan by saying that the accord does not pay sufficient attention to the victims as President Moon has stated. The ROK minister made the statement at a session of the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women that was held in Geneva on Thursday. However, Chung did not mention the possibility of revising the accord or dissolving the foundation that was set up to support former comfort women.
