On Sept. 28, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) conveyed a protest to the South Korean government regarding the court ruling ordering the sale of [seized] assets of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in connection with the lawsuit filed by former members of the Korean Women’s Volunteer Labor Corps.


On the same day, MOFA Asian and Oceanian Affairs Bureau Director-General Funakoshi Takehiro summoned Kim Yong-gil, minister at the South Korean Embassy in Tokyo, to MOFA. Funakoshi told Kim that the court decision “is extremely regrettable and absolutely unacceptable” and called on Seoul to take appropriate measures. (Abridged)
