SEOUL, April 3 (Yonhap) -- Japan's top envoy to South Korea, who was brought in to Tokyo amid diplomatic friction over a girl statue symbolizing its wartime sexual slavery of Korean women, will return to Seoul, a foreign ministry official here said Monday.

The Japanese government recalled its Ambassador to Seoul Yasumasa Nagamine in January in protest over the statue civic groups built in front of its consulate in southern port city of Busan.
