  Korea calls on Japan to take stance on the 1993 Kono statement
The Korean government has expressed regret over remarks made by a top Japanese government official in which he suggested possibly replacing Japan's landmark apology issued to the victims of its wartime sexual enslavement.
Korea's Foreign Ministry said Sunday that it takes note of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's recent remarks on upholding the Kono statement issued in 1993 and urged the Japanese government to reaffirm its stance.
Earlier Sunday, one of Abe's special advisers, Koichi Hagiuda said a new statement should be drafted if new facts come to light.
