a japanese who speak out faults of japan

Yoriko Kawaguchi(川口順子, age : 72), former foreign minister of Japan, wrote a blog opposing the revision of Kono statement, which claims that the Japanese military was broadly involved in the establishment of comfort stations and management of comfort women. The statement also offered an apology and reflection of the Japanese government. She claimed that the Japanese military took part in the comfort women issue, and their actions violate the dignity and rights of the many women. The international community view the comfort women issue as a human rights violations against women during wartime by the Japanese military. If Abe administration maintains their stances regarding the comfort women by denying the Kono statement, Japan will be stigmatized as a war crime nation.
