North Korea repeats demand for Japanese apology

Following Japan’s apology to South Korea, North Korea has demanded reparations from Japan for colonising the Korean peninsula for nearly three decades in the beginning of the last century.
Japan should sincerely apologise and make full reparation to the nation for not only it aggression but also the crimes committed against humanity said a spokesman of North Korean government agency.

Though Japan’s apology to South Korea on 10th August was not the first, what triggered the North Korean response was the fact that the date coincided with the 100th anniversary of Japan’s annexation of Korea.
Japan ruled over Korea from 1910 to 1945, during which time the Japanese army is alleged to have forced nearly two lakh Korean and Chinese women to be sex slaves who were called comfort women for their Imperial Army.
