Three U.S. senators have formally asked President Barack Obama to step up efforts to help resolve the issue of Japan's sexual enslavement of Korean and other Asian women during World War II.
Tim Johnson, Martin Heinrich and Mark Begich sent a letter carrying the message to the White House earlier this week, taking note of President Obama's comments during his trip to Asia in April, where he described Japan's sexual slavery issue as a "terrible and egregious violation of human rights."
The senators added that resolving the controversial matter will be key to building closer ties with Korea and Japan, especially as the U.S. tries to rebalance towards the Asia-Pacific region.
