Korea hires U.S. PR firm ahead of Abe's speech to Congress: Wall Street Journal Updated: 2015-04-22 09:50:58 KST

The Korean government has hired a U.S. PR firm to promote its position on Japan's wartime history ahead of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's speech to U.S. Congress next week.
The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that the Washington-based company, which doesn't want to be named, is tasked with presenting Korea's position on disagreements between Seoul and Tokyo over their shared history.
The paper quoted a company executive who said their job was to "make sure reporters who hear Abe speak understand what he's *not saying."
The move comes amid concerns that Abe won't acknowledge or apologize for Japan's wartime past.
An official from Korea's foreign ministry said the move is part of efforts to strengthen existing public relations work in light of Abe's speech.
Abe is scheduled to address Congress on April 29th.
