 Comfort women resolution monument built in NY state

A monument remembering the suffering of thousands of women drafted into sexual slavery by the Japanese military during World War II has been built in the state of New York.
The 2007 resolution, which calls on the Japanese government to deliver an apology for the atrocities is engraved on the statue.
Last week, U.S. President Barack Obama signed a federal spending bill that cites that resolution.
Similar monuments were erected in Palisades Park in New Jersey in 2010, and Nassau County in New York in 2012.
An opening ceremony is scheduled for Friday.
