The Korean government says it will publish a special report as part of its push to raise international awareness of the sex slavery issue in light of Japan's re-examination of its landmark apology.
Officials said on Monday that Seoul will publish a white paper on the forced sexual enslavement of some 2-hundred-thousand women by the Japanese military during the World War II.
The Korean government wants Japan to acknowledge and take responsibility for its past wrongdoings.
Seoul also wants to raise the international community's understanding of the sex slavery issue.
Issued back in 1993 by then-Chief Cabinet Secretary Yohei Kono, the so-called 'Kono Statement' is Japan's acknowledgement of its military's involvement in wartime sexual slavery.
