Japan and South Korea Reach Deal on "Comfort Women" Enslaved During World War II

Tokyo, December 28 (RHC)-- Japan and South Korea have reached a deal aimed at addressing the demands of so-called 'comfort women' forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese military during World War II.

The deal includes an apology from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and a more than $8 million fund for survivors. In exchange, South Korea has agreed not to criticize Japan publicly over the issue.

Survivors have said the deal falls far short of their call for Japan to admit legal responsibility and pay formal reparations.
