South Korea sets up task force on historical issues with Japan

Bishkek (AKIpress) - japan south korea South Korea's Foreign Ministry has set up a task force to cope with common historical issues with Japan ahead of the bilateral general-level talks over the wartime sex slaves to be held later this month, Xinhua  reported Monday.

The three-member task force, which is under the Ministry's Northeast Asian affairs bureau, will conduct in-depth and systematic research on Tokyo's wartime sexual enslavement of Korean women and will assist the existing office specially dealing with Japanese issues.

Japan's relations with South Korea are at one of the worst levels of the post-war era due to their territorial disputes and Japan's erroneous understanding of wartime history such as the “comfort women” and history textbook issues.

The Ministry's new move was reportedly to enhance the level of previous office and entitle it new responsibilities considering the strained bilateral ties.
