‘Comfort women’ and wartime sexual slavery: Subject of South Korea, Japan talks

Seoul: South Korea and Japan will hold talks at a director general-level in Tokyo on Friday, to discuss militaristic Japan’s sex enslavement of Korean women during the Second World War, said Seoul’s foreign ministry on Thursday.

The ninth round of talks about ‘comfort women’, a euphemism for women forced into sex slaves for the Imperial Japan’s military brothels during its 1910-45 colonisation of the Korean Peninsula, will be held for the first time in about three months, Xinhua reported.

Lee Sang-deok, director-general of Northeast Asian affairs bureau at South Korea’s foreign ministry, flew to Tokyo for talks with Junichi Ihara, director-general of the Japanese foreign ministry’s Asian and Oceanian affairs bureau.

During the previous round held in Tokyo in June, South Korea and Japan allegedly narrowed down differences on the ‘comfort women’ issue, but they had yet to reach a full agreement.
