South Korea / Japan – Agreement on “comfort women” (December 28, 2015)

France welcomes the historic agreement between Korea and Japan on “comfort women.”

As we have had the opportunity to note on several occasions, on this 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, France attributes great importance to the settlement of regional disputes, including issues of remembrance, through dialogue and in a spirit of mutual respect.

This agreement strengthens relations between the two countries, refocusing them resolutely on the future.
