January 20, the diplomatic team of Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party and others submitted a resolution to Foreign Minister Toshimishimoki on the 19th condemning the ruling of the South Korean District Court ordering the Japanese government to compensate in the former comfort women’s lawsuit.
The resolution criticized the judgment as “exceeding the norm in international law and absolutely unacceptable”. The government was asked to explore “resolute confrontational measures”, including litigation with the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
In response to the resolution taken over by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs from Masahisa Sato, the chairman of the group, Shimogi said: “The judgment of the District Court of South Korea is shocking.
All options will be considered to deal with it.” The above information was revealed by people present.
The resolution also referred to the original labor recruitment lawsuit ruling that determined that the Japanese enterprise had lost the lawsuit, writing that “South Korea can’t help but be indignant after repeatedly taking actions to make international commitments into waste paper”.
In addition to filing a lawsuit with the International Court of Justice, it is also proposed to withdraw the appointment of Jiang Changyi, the former president of the Korean-Japan Parliamentarians Union, as the new ambassador to Japan, which has agreed by the Japanese government, and postpone the arrival of the new ambassador to South Korea, Takaichi Xiangxing, as a confrontational measure.
