Japan's Sincere Apology for Sexual Slavery Demanded in S. Korea
Pyongyang, January 6 (KCNA) -- The Council for the Solution of the Issue of the Volunteers Corps in south Korea clarified on January 2 that it would further expand the campaign for demanding Japan's sincere apology for the sexual slavery.

The council said that the "agreement" on the sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army reached between south Korea and Japan on Dec. 28 last year was a humiliating outcome as it lacked Japan's sincere apology, admission of legal responsibility and reparation for the crime.

What stunned us was the fact that south Korea and Japan discussed the matter of removing the statue of a girl depicting the victim of the sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army standing before the Japanese embassy in Seoul, the organization deplored.

It stressed that the statue should not be pulled down but a lot of statues would be erected in south Korea and the world.

Prior to this, the organization held the 1 211th Wednesday meeting before the Japanese embassy in Seoul on Dec. 30 last year.

At the meeting speakers said that they would set up solidarity bodies for settling the issue of the sexual slavery along with civic and social organizations, lawyers, politicians and students in Asia, Europe, the U.S., etc.

They declared that they would hold Wednesday meetings before 27 statues of a girl across the country and expand the campaign.
