Apology must not be unilateral.

We think, the Korean government (on behalf of Korean citizens) are still angry at the Japanese government regarding this issue because the apology made was formal and unilateral. Did the Japanese government fully accept that they helped to form the comfort women system? The money which was paid to the Korean government has acted as money to silence the argument on the subject of comfort women. Presently history lessons about the Japanese colonies of WW2 have no place in the Japanese education system. It is kept in the shadows of the war. Children do not know what happened and what we must not repeat. What the Korean government wants, is not a simple apology, but two different things; a cordial apology to the victims and objective history education in Japan.

Memories of war do not disappear easily. Especially victim's memories, they do not disappear.

The reparation problem after the Second World War has occurred in many countries. An apology may also be necessary, but the victims cannot be satisfied with such reparations. Probably the tragic memories of war do not disappear for them, we have to work out differences in perception peacefully.

However, the accommodation of the problem is the role of the government, it depends largely on the circumstances of the respective governments. Especially in regards to Japan and South Korea, conflicts often intensify at times.

Although the anger of the Korean government is partly understandable, we think it should be rationally resolved.
