Japan denies forced nature of wartime sex slavery in recent UN report Updated: 2016-02-01 04:02:12 KST

Japan has submitted a report to a UN agency denying that its military coerced women into sexual slavery during World War Two.
The report was submitted to the Committee on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women ahead of a committee meeting in mid-February.
Seoul-based Yonhap News Agency confirmed the content of the report on Sunday.
It concludes there is no evidence of coercion after a full study on the matter was conducted by Tokyo.
Korea's foreign ministry says coercion is an undeniable historical fact, adding that Japan should refrain from comments that could harm the bilateral agreement struck between the two countries late last year.
Under the deal, Japan apologized and agreed to pay some eight million U.S. dollars, as compensation to the surviving victims.
