Rodong Sinmun Lays Bare Japan's Moral Vulgarity and Shamelessness
Pyongyang, January 21 (KCNA) -- Shortly ago, Japanese Foreign Minister Kishida said it was his understanding that the statue of a girl depicting the victim of the sexual slavery erected in Seoul would be properly moved according to the deal clinched with south Korea on the issue of the sexual slavery.

Commenting on this, Rodong Sinmun Thursday says that what he uttered is little short of the open declaration of the Japanese government's stance that there is nothing for Japan to own responsibility or settle as regards the sexual slavery.

The commentary goes on:

The issue of the sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army is not the issue to be solved by pulling down the symbol of the sexual slavery while bamboozling half-witted party with a petty amount of money.

It cannot be settled finally unless Japan admits its state, legal and moral responsibility for the sexual slavery, make a sincere apology and reparation for it and takes measures for reinstating all victims and takes measures against the recurrence of the crime.

There are not a few countries in the world which committed crimes intentionally or against their will. But the world does not know such country as Japan which goes so morally mean and shameful.

Clear is the reason why Japan is trying so hard to have the statues of a girl pulled down while awkwardly showing off its wallet. Its aim is to cover up the history of its past invasions and evade its state responsibility for redeeming its past.

No matter what gimmick Japan may employ to write off its history, it is bound to remain immutable truth.

Japan's persistent despicable behavior to hide the truth of history and evade its responsibility would only add to its crimes.

The world will certainly force Japan to pay for its past crimes.
