"Japan gov't considering Int'l Court of Justice for 'comfort women' issue": Report Updated: 2021-01-11 03:52:50 KST

Japan is reportedly looking at going to the International Court of Justice regarding the South Korean court rulings ordering Japan to pay compensation to the Korean women it forced into sexual slavery during World War Two.
The Asahi Shimbun newspaper quoted a Japanese government official on Sunday as saying that going to the ICJ is a strong possibility.
Japan argues that the issue of the so-called "comfort women" was settled in the 1965 treaty that normalized relations between the two countries, and in a 2015 deal in which they agreed to end the dispute "irreversibly."
On Friday, though, the Seoul Central District Court ordered the Japanese government to compensate 12 South Korean victims of the sexual slavery system by paying them around 92-thousand U.S. dollars each for their mental and physical suffering.
