Statement by the Spokesperson on the agreement between Japan and the Republic of Korea regarding the treatment of "comfort women" during WWII

The agreement between Japan and the Republic of Korea that addresses the treatment of "comfort women" during World War II is a due step expected for a long time.

We hope that the full implementation of this agreement will lead to the healing and reconciliation needed over this sensitive historical issue.
