Osaka sounds out new San Francisco mayor on comfort women statue

Yomiuri wrote on its website that the Osaka municipal government has sent a letter to San Francisco Mayor Breed to ask her how she feels about the comfort women statue that her predecessor, Mayor Lee, decided to accept as a city monument last November before he suddenly passed away the following month. Osaka is reportedly keen to learn the new mayor’s position on the matter since Osaka Mayor Yoshimura chose to end his city’s sister-city relationship with San Francisco based on the former mayor’s decision. The Osaka leader will reportedly go ahead and sever ties if Mayor Breed upholds Mayor Lee’s position.
