In a press conference at the Tokyo House of Representatives hall attended by about 30 domestic and international reporters, elderly comfort women victims, Lee Ok-sun and Kang Il-chul, criticized the Korea-Japan agreement on the issue of comfort women signed last year.

Ms. Lee claimed that the Korean government pushed the victims to the back and "paid the victims to stay quiet."

Ms. Kang claimed that "Abe should get down on his knees, apologize and provide compensation."

The two women were forcibly taken to China from Ulsan and Sangju of North Gyeongsang Province, when they were 16 years old, and lived as comfort women for the Japanese military.
