Resigning of S. Korea-Japan “Agreement” Urged in S. Korea

Pyongyang, April 25 (KCNA) — Twenty-eight lawmakers from ruling and opposition parties in south Korea on April 21 presented to the National Assembly a draft resolution demanding that the south Korean-Japan “agreement” of 1965 be resigned, according to south Korean KBS.

Decrying the “agreement” as an offspring of typical humiliating diplomacy defending the Japanese imperialists’ colonial rule over Korea in the past, they in the resolution urged an immediate opening to the public of all the documents related to it.

They demanded that Japan reflect on and apologize for its invasion and colonial occupation of the Korean Peninsula and that the Japanese government transfer to the south Korean government materials concerning human rights violation such as the issue of “comfort women” for the imperial Japanese army which it has so far concealed.
