Moon calls for ‘heartfelt’ Japan apology for WWII sex slavery

SEOUL (AFP) – South Korean President Moon Jae-In yesterday called for a “heartfelt apology” from Japan to the victims of wartime sex slavery, condemning a 2015 agreement as a “wrongful” solution. Seoul said this week that it would not seek to renegotiate the deal, as it had been agreed by both Tokyo and the previous South Korean government. But it said it would no longer use Japanese money to compensate the survivors. More details in Thursday’s Borneo Bulletin.
