Royce committed to 'getting historical record correct' on comfort women issue Updated: 2015-03-20 16:32:51 KST

The chairman of the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee pledged his commitment to (quote)"getting the historical record correct" regarding Japan's wartime sexual enslavement of women.
In a statement, Representative Ed Royce says he told a group of visiting South Korean lawmakers about his trip to a memorial set up in Glendale, Los Angeles to honor the so-called "comfort women."
The statement also mentioned that the Korean lawmakers told Royce that it is not appropriate for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to address the U.S. Congress without sincerely apologizing for Tokyo's wartime atrocities.
On this, the U.S. lawmaker reportedly said nothing has been decided yet.
The Japanese leader is set to visit Washington next month, amid mounting calls by the international community to sincerely apologize.
