A statue that appears to represent the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, aroused the wrath of Japan. Indeed, the statue installed at Pyeongchang, shows a man kneeling in front of a comforting woman. This denomination is attributed to Korean prostitutes forced to work in the land of the rising sun, during the Second World War. The question of these women, mostly Korean, is a reason for disagreement between the Japan and the South Korea, for several years.

The sign of atonement

The Secretary General of the Japanese Cabinet, Yoshihide Suga, considered that this statue could constitute a violation “Unforgivable” of the international protocol. During a press conference in the capital Tokyo, he implied that “If this information is true, then it would have a significant impact on relations between Japan and Korea”. kim Chang-ryul, who had the statue installed inside the botanical garden of Pyeongchang, made it clear that the said statue did not particularly represent the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, and was the sign of atonement. He told a British media outlet that she could however “Quite about Abe”. In addition, the head of diplomacy of the South Korea did not comment on this subject, stressing that it is a question of a reproachful act to a citizen and not to the country.

The question is “Definitely resolved”

Note that the subject of compensation for prostitutes has long been a problem in the government of Shinzo Abe. For the Japan, the question is “Definitely resolved” after the signing, in 2015, of an agreement between the South Korean head of state Geun-hye Park and the Japanese Prime Minister. The latter had apologized and promised to compensate the survivors, through a special fund. Nevertheless, the Korean government felt that the agreement had too many shortcomings and canceled it.
