Abe's attitude toward the issue of comfort women

Abe expressed on TV that he shared the same sentiment and cognition toward the issue of comfort women as Kouno.


China reported it, I guess, positively.
Tokyo, March 11 (Xinhua) Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe Sunday expressed unfeigned apology to 'comfort women' who were forced by Japan's then military government into sex slavery during World War II.

In a TV programme of NHK, Abe also reiterated that his government will not change the policy of honouring the Kono statement.

Former Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi and Ryutaro Hashimoto have both sent letters of apology to past 'comfort women,' and he shares the same mind and want to sincerely apologise to those ' comfort women' who have suffered mentally and physically, Abe was quoted as saying by Kyodo News Xinhua.

Nothing is new.
The apology is not addressed to ex-comfort women but he confirmed and affirmed the apology the former PM had made.
What else the US congress want? Visit every so-called ex-comfort woman and kneel down
and apologize? That is fun. let Abe do it.
