The report from the Comfort Women Agreement task force is stirring up quite a controversy.

The expression of irreversibility among the details of the Korea-Japan agreement was first suggested by the Korean government and it appears that there was also an undisclosed dual agreement as well.

The voice for annulment of agreement or renegotiation is thus expected to grow.

We will discuss further with Reporter Lee Bong-seok from our politics department.

<Question 1> First of all, is it true that the word ‘irreversible’among the controversial phrase ‘terminal, irreversible’ from the comfort women agreement two years ago was first suggested by our government?

<Question 2> You stated that the Blue House ignored opinions from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, so is it true that the Blue House instructed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to refrain from speaking about the comfort women at an international level?

<Question 3> What is more shocking is that there was a dual agreement, including the issue regarding the Statue of Peace. Is this also true?

<Question 4> As you stated briefly earlier, it seems like the Blue House oversaw the negotiations for the comfort women agreement. Is this true?

<Question 5> Then what is the reason for former President Park Geun-hye to have been in a sudden rush for an agreement?

<Question 6> It seems that Japan will be sensitive towards this task force report. How will this affect the relationship between Korea and Japan?

<Question 7> So, former Minster Yun Byung-se, who was involved in the comfort women agreement, expressed regret regarding the current issue. Is this true?
