S. Korean Organizations Urge Japanese Government to Make Apology to Sexual Slavery Victims
Pyongyang, January 16 (KCNA) -- Actions against the humiliating negotiations which covered up the sexual slavery crimes committed by Japan in the past were staged in Seoul on Jan. 13, according to the south Korean Yonhap News.

Members of the organizations of different social standings in south Korea including the Council for the Solution of the Issue of the Volunteers Corps and victims of sexual slavery held a Wednesday rally before a girl's statue.

At the rally, they said that they opposed the "agreement" with Japan which was signed without asking the will of victims.

The south Korean authorities and Japan have no right to talk about transfer and withdrawal of the girl's statue, they held.

More than 30 women's organizations held a rally at the same place, declaring the "agreement" null and void.

The Seoul Headquarters of the south Korean Confederation of Trade Unions and the Solidarity for Progress in Seoul held a press conference before the girl's statue, disclosing the fact that behind the "agreement" lie Japan's moves for rearmament and military cooperation with south Korea, the U.S. and Japan.

The council for coping with the situation of student representatives in denunciation of south Korea-Japan negotiations held a press conference outside the foreign ministry where it said the humiliating "agreement" is void and the girl's statue must not be transferred.
