He also pledged to continue the work of former leader Shinzo Abe, whose signature "Abenomics" program involved vast government spending and monetary easing, and attempts to cut red tape.

They were sex slaves NOT comfort women.

They were procured for sex and the Japanese may have compensated the Korean government but they have NOT properly recognized their disgraceful past and come to terms with it.

Denying it won't make it go away.
