Korea Plans to Take Comfort Women Issue to UN General Assembly Updated: 2012-09-16 00:00:00 KST

The Korean government plans to raise the issue of comfort women, who were Korean women used as sex slaves by the Japanese military during World War 2, at the 67th Session of the UN General Assembly, which begins Tuesday in New York.
Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan will lead the Korean delegation and deliver a keynote speech on September 28th.
Besides the comfort women issue, government officials said the foreign minister may also bring up the issue of Japan's claims over Korea's Dokdo Islets as the issue is also related to Japan's colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula.
If Japan mentions the Dokdo sovereignty issue at the UN session, the Korean government plans to rebut its claims.
