S. Korea, Japan resume sexual slavery talks today Updated: 2014-07-23 21:30:55 KST

Korea and Japan resumed talks in Seoul on Wednesday, on the Japanese military's forced sexual enslavement of women before and during World War II.
It marks the first such meeting since Tokyo went back and REVIEWED its 1993 Kono Statement, in which the Japanese government apologized for its wartime atrocities.
An official at Seoul's foreign ministry said Korea issued a formal complaint over Japan's review and, once again, called on Tokyo to compensate victims.
The two sides did not, however, discuss the possibility of a ministerial-level meeting next month, on the sidelines of the ASEAN Regional Forum in Myanmar.
