The parliamentary foreign affairs committee has passed a resolution condemning Japan's recent review of its past apology for coercing women into sexual slavery during World War Two.
Calling Tokyo's review of the 1993 Kono Statement a historical provocation, Korean lawmakers accused Japan of contradicting itself by denying the essence of its past apology and denounced it for damaging a peaceful co-existence and cooperation in Northeast Asia.
Warning such a provocative act would isolate Japan from the international community, the resolution urges Tokyo to stop claiming the apology was a compromise made between Korea and Japan.
Lawmakers also called on the Korean government to search for additional evidence of the Japanese military's forced wartime sexual enslavement of women from Korea and other Asian countries.
