Osaka ends sister-city relationship with San Francisco

Asahi and Mainichi reported on an announcement made by the municipal government of Osaka on Tuesday that it has terminated its sister-city relationship with San Francisco given that the U.S. city had not responded by Sept. 30 to its letter requesting the removal of a comfort women statute that was erected in the city last September. Osaka Mayor Yoshimura told the press that the relationship of trust between the two municipalities has been “destroyed.”
