S. Korea Seeks Sincerity from Japan in Resolving Sex Slavery

The presidential office has said it hopes Japan will be more sincere about resolving the conflict surrounding Japan’s wartime sexual slavery of women so the two nations will be able to reach a resolution as soon as possible through director-level consultations.
Presidential Spokesperson Jeong Yeon-guk made the remark Thursday after media reports that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said it will be difficult to reach a resolution within the year.
Japanese media reported that in a meeting with Sadakazu Tanigaki, secretary-general of Japan's ruling Liberal Democratic Party on Wednesday, Abe said some in South Korea hope to see an accord reached by the end of the year, but that it would be difficult as the basic stances of Japan and South Korea are different.
Jeong said the two countries have been holding director-level talks and he expects more discussions based on the South Korea-Japan summit.
President Park Geun-hye and Prime Minister Abe agreed at a summit on Monday to accelerate discussions to resolve the sexual slavery conflict.
