Korean president Park thanks U.S. law makers to help with comfort women issue

President Park Geun-hye sat down for talks with U.S. lawmakers on Tuesday, and used the opportunity to highlight unresolved issues surrounding Japan’s use of sex slaves during World War Two.
Meeting a group led by U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce, the president said just 55 of Korea’s sexual slavery victims, better known as “comfort women,” remain alive today.
President Park thanked Royce for taking the lead in Congress in support of Korea’s efforts to resolve historical issues with Japan, and for visiting a comfort women memorial in Glendale, California.
Representative Royce expressed support for President Park’s vision for reunification with North Korea, saying it would pave the way to provide new opportunities for the North Korean people.
