[Anchor Lead] Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has been reacting strongly against Korean National Assembly Speaker Moon Hee-sang's remark during an interview, that the Japanese emperor should apologize for the sexual slavery of Korean women during World War II. But the Korean politician answered that he had just spoken out his opinion in the interview. [Pkg] Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who attended the budget meeting at Japan's House of Representatives, continued his attack on South Korean National Assembly Speaker Moon Hee-sang for two straight days. He protested strongly, claiming that the Japanese people would have been angered by Moon's interview with Bloomberg in which he said the issue of comfort women would be resolved if the Japanese emperor, the son of a key war criminal, apologized to the Korean victims of Japan's wartime sexual slavery. The Japanese Prime Minister referred to the 2015 bilateral agreement reached between Seoul and Tokyo on the comfort women issue. [Soundbite] Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe : "If an agreement is overturned when administrations change hand, a relationship between two countries cannot be established from the start." Speaker Moon, who is in the United States with a delegation of Korean lawmakers to discuss the North Korea nuclear issue, explained what he meant by the comment. He said calling the Japanese emperor the son of a key war criminal was meant to emphasize the need to have a sincere apology from the leader. As for Japan's demand that he withdraw the remark and apologize for it, Moon responded that he had just spoken out his opinion and the matter does not merit his apology. [Soundbite] Nat'l Assembly Speaker Moon Hee-sang : "My thoughts haven't changed. It only takes one word. Prime Minister Abe is the highest official representing Japan and what the late Kim Bok-dong, the victim of wartime sexual slavery, wanted was something as small as a postcard from him."

'Sex Slaves' Scaｍ Propaganda: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLglPdV6wZ1n7JClx1Zcb3XLRRI07CtYEH&disable_polymer=true (引用) South Korea Lawmaker Seeks Imperial Apology for Japan Sex Slaves, Bloomberg, 2019/02/08: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-02-08/south-korea-lawmaker-seeks-imperial-apology-for-japan-sex-slaves Japan’s emperor should hold hands with women forced to work in the country’s military brothels and make a personal apology if Tokyo wants to end the decades-old dispute, South Korea’s top lawmaker said. National Assembly Speaker Moon Hee-sang said in an interview Thursday that Japanese Emperor Akihito -- as the “the son of the main culprit of war crimes” -- should deliver the apology before his planned abdication in May. Moon was asked how the two U.S. allies could resolve a worsening diplomatic feud fueled by disagreements over Japan’s 1910-45 occupation of the Korean Peninsula, much of it under the emperor’s late father, Hirohito. “It only takes one word from the prime minister, who represents Japan -- I wish the emperor would do it since he will step down soon,” said Moon, South Korea’s No. 2 elected official and a former presidential envoy to Japan. “Isn’t he the son of the main culprit of war crimes? “So, if a person like that holds the hands of the elderly and says he’s really sorry, then that one word will resolve matters once and for all,” he said. The Japanese prime minister’s office didn’t immediately respond Friday to a request for comment on Moon’s remarks. The speaker’s comments underscore the widening divide between the neighbors, whose ties have sunk to one of their lowest points in more than half a century. The direct challenge to the emperor -- a revered figure, whose father was once considered a living god -- risked further angering Japan. Read: How WWII Still Stirs Tension in South Korea and Japan While Akihito offered his “deepest regret” in 1990 for Japan’s colonization of the peninsula, many Koreans argue the country has failed to properly atone for specific wrongdoings, especially forcing local women to serve as “comfort women” in military brothels. Former South Korean President Lee Myung-bak outraged Japan in 2012 when he demanded a fuller apology as a condition for an imperial visit. The dispute reemerged after President Moon Jae-in was elected in 2017 and moved to undo the comfort women pact his predecessor reached with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. After the death of comfort woman-turned-campaigner Kim Bok-dong last month, Moon vowed to do everything in his power to “correct the history” for the 23 surviving victims. In the interview, Moon Hee-sang said the “most sincere apologies” and compensation fund Abe offered comfort women in the December 2015 deal fell short of the sort of personal contrition German leaders have shown for their own country’s wartime atrocities. “That is a legal apology,” he said Thursday. “Countries can exchange apologies, but the problem is there are victims.” Differing Views More than 90 percent of South Koreans believed that Japan still needed to apologize over the comfort women issue, according to a joint survey of both countries published by the Seoul-based Hankook Daily and Tokyo-based Yomiuri newspaper in July. That compared with less than 8 percent of Japanese who said another statement was necessary. In 2001, Akihito told reporters that he felt affinity with Korea because one of his ancestors was said to have married a Korean princess. The 85-year-old monarch is due to cede the throne to Crown Prince Naruhito in May, after saying his declining health had made it difficult to carry out his duties. Moon Hee-sang, 73, has long been a fixture in progressive South Korean political circles and served as a top aide to the current president’s mentor. In July, he was elected speaker of the 300-seat National Assembly, a position of ceremonial rank second only to the president. The pair are not related. Washington Visit The speaker will likely be asked about South Korea-Japan ties next week, when he’s slated to lead a multiparty delegation to Washington to meet top U.S. officials including American counterpart Nancy Pelosi. The two sides are also expected to discuss U.S. President Donald Trump’s next meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un later this month in Vietnam. Moon Hee-sang described the summit as a “great opportunity that arrives once in a thousand years” to establish peace on the peninsula, which been in a state of unresolved war since 1950. Reduced hostilities between the two Koreas would also improve ties with Japan, he said. The speaker credited Moon Jae-in with bringing Trump and Kim to the negotiating table. “He is the president who has won trust from the both sides,” Moon Hee-sang said. “The three have a fantastic chemistry.” https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-02-08/south-korea-lawmaker-seeks-imperial-apology-for-japan-sex-slaves

Japan’s new emperor Naruhito ascended the Chrysanthemum Throne in a low-key ceremony, taking over his father’s duties to serve as the symbol of a nation facing slower economic growth and an aging population. In a ritual on Wednesday at the Imperial Palace, Naruhito, 59, inherited the royal regalia that serves as ceremonial proof of his ascension, including a sacred sword and jewels. A more extravagant enthronement is set for Oct. 22, which will involve visits from heads of state and government from around the world, a series of banquets and a parade through the streets of Tokyo. “In accordance with the constitution, I vow to fulfill my responsibilities as a symbol to the nation and the people of Japan,” said Naruhito, the first emperor born after World War Two. “I wish for happiness and prosperity for the nation, and for world peace.” While his position no longer bestows political power or the status as a living god, Naruhito will serve as titular head of the country of 126 million. He’ll bring an international background to the role, having spent two years studying at the University of Oxford in his twenties. His wife, Masako, a former diplomat, studied at Harvard University, as well as Oxford. “It will be interesting to see what happens with Japan’s relationship with China and South Korea under the new emperor,” said Yuji Otabe, professor emeritus of Japanese history at Shizuoka University of Welfare. “I think Naruhito wants to make amends with South Korea and make things better as an Asian neighbor.” Naruhito’s first major diplomatic task will be to entertain U.S. President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, at a formal banquet during their state visit to Japan later this month. Trump sent his congratulations, promising to “renew the strong bonds of friendship between our two countries.” Chinese President Xi Jinping congratulated the new emperor, saying the two countries should work towards a bright future for bilateral ties. South Korean President Moon Jae-in also sent salutations, urging Naruhito to remember “pain from the war” and contribute to peace like his father. Although Akihito expressed “deepest regret” in 1990 for the suffering caused by Japan during its 1910-45 occupation of Korea, differences over the colonial period continue to strain ties between the two neighbors. On Tuesday, Akihito, 85, became the first Japanese monarch to relinquish the throne in 202 years, voluntarily stepping down due to health concerns after a three-decade reign. He affirmed his abdication at a ceremony attended by about 300 political leaders and dignitaries, including Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who thanked the “emperor emeritus” for his reign and praised him for giving the Japanese people “courage and hope for tomorrow.” Subscribe to our YouTube channel: https://bit.ly/2TwO8Gm TICTOC ON SOCIAL: Follow TicToc on Twitter: https://twitter.com/tictoc Like TicToc on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tictoc Follow TicToc on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tictoc Watch all of TicToc’s videos: https://www.tictoc.video/ Listen to TicToc’s podcast: https://apple.co/2D3Vta7 Subscribe to our newsletter: https://bit.ly/2FJ0oQZ TicToc by Bloomberg is global news for the life you lead.
