Japan slams South Korea for mention of ‘sex slaves’ at U.N. meeting 

Tokyo criticized Seoul on Friday over a South Korean minister’s use of the term “sex slaves” at a U.N. committee meeting in Geneva to describe the women who were forced to work in Japanese military brothels before and during World War II.

“Japan is of the view that the expression ‘sex slaves’ contradicts the facts and should not be used,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.   The Japan Times
