Former Japanese Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama arrived in Seoul on Tuesday for a three-day visit and met with three South Korean women who were forced into sexual servitude during World War II later in the day.
"Japanese people had forcibly taken us to China. They should make an apology and provide compensation," said Kang Il Chool, one of the three South Korean women.
In response, Murayama, 89, wished them good health and shook hands with them. The meeting took place at an exhibition hall at the National Assembly.
