S. Korea Regrets Japan Not Keeping Promise after UNESCO Listing

South Korea has expressed regret over Japan not keeping its promise to commemorate the victims of wartime forced labor at its modern industrial facilities listed as UNESCO heritage.
The Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Tuesday, saying that the government urges Japan to faithfully and swiftly implement its follow-up measures on the world heritage listing to remember the victims of its forced labor as it promised the international community.
The ministry said that Japan had promised to open information centers at seven of its 23 past industrial facilities at the time the sites were registered on the UNESCO World Heritage list in July 2015.
The information centers are to acknowledge that forced labor took place at the seven facilities which include Hashima Island where Korean laborers were drafted, and to commemorate those who lost their lives.
However, Japan recently submitted a report to UNESCO, in which it said that it will install the promised information center in Tokyo, not in Nagasaki, where the facilities are located.
