The United Nations is once again urging Japan to take full blame for the sexual enslavement of tens of thousands of women from Korea and elsewhere in Asia during World War Two.
The UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination said on Friday that, by failing to treat the aging survivors in a respectful and proper way, Japan had let their suffering drag on for decades.
The committee's deputy head, Anastasia Crickley, says Tokyo needs to conclude investigations into the human rights violations, bring those responsible to justice and pursue a comprehensive and lasting resolution to the sex slavery issue.
Historians say some 200-thousand women, mainly from Korea but also from a number of other Asian countries, were forced to work in Japanese military brothels before and during the Second World War.
