Pyongyang, February 7 (KCNA) — U.S. Secretary of State Tillerson during his recent press appearance said that Japan still has something to do for the solution of the sexual slavery issue.
Dumb-founded by the attitude of the U.S. whom Japan upholds just like her own father, the Japanese government reeled off a string of complaints, talking about sort of “concerns”.
A commentary of Minju Joson Wednesday brands this as a senseless complaint of political imbeciles in whom even an iota of human conscience can hardly be found.
The hideous crimes against humanity committed by Japan can never be settled without state acknowledgement of responsibility from legal viewpoint and without apology and reparation to the victims, the commentary says, and goes on:
Japan’s persistent act of denying the crimes related to the sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army is as foolish an act as adding to its past crimes.
Japan’s far-fetched assertions and a litany of complaints are not just aimed to cover up its despicable nature as a war criminal state. Lurking behind its moves is a sordid design to realize the old ambition of the “Greater East-Asia Co-prosperity Sphere”, which it failed to do in the past, by reviving militarist Japan.
This is useless, however. Japan can neither cover up nor write off the truth of history no matter how desperately it may try.
The statues of sexual slaves being set up in different parts of the world today are a serious warning of the world mindset to the present Japanese reactionaries who are going impudent while categorically evading sincere repentance and reparation for the past crimes.
