White House to plan second meeting with sexual slavery victims: Sources Updated: 2014-08-07 14:30:27 KST

Following last week's meeting, the White House is said to be planning a second round of talks with the Korean victims of Japan's wartime sexual slavery.
Sources close to the meeting said Paulette Aniskoff, director of the Office of Public Engagement at the White House expressed her intention to invite two of the victims, Lee Ok-sun and Kang Il-chul , back to the executive office sometime next month.
Aniskoff is known to have shown strong sympathy to the women while listening to their harrowing wartime experiences.
The sources say the follow-up meeting, if confirmed, is expected to involve not only U.S. officials from civil social affairs, but also those handling foreign and security policies.
The White House's National Security Council, however, says it's not aware of any future meetings.
