A South Korean court order to compensate victims of Japan’s so-called ‘comfort women’ system was finalized on Saturday, as the Japanese government made no appeal before the deadline.
Japan’s foreign minister Toshimitsu Motegi issued a statement on Saturday, urging South Korea to “immediately” take action against the ruling.
He said the ruling was “extremely regrettable” and “unacceptable”, including against international law.
Earlier this month, a Seoul court ordered the Japanese government to pay around 92-thousand U.S. dollars per person, to twelve Korean victims of Japan’s wartime system of sexual enslavement.
