REPORTER: The Government of the Republic of Korea (ROK) announced a five-year plan on national affairs today. The plan includes requesting Japan to pay costs related to the comfort women for the Imperial Japanese Army in 2018, as well as creating an institute in 2019 to study the issue of former comfort women. Can you please share your comments regarding the content of the plan?

CHIEF CABINET SECRETARY SUGA: I am not aware of the content. In any case, Japan and the ROK have agreed upon the agreement regarding the comfort women issue, and therefore, it is of utmost importance that both sides implement the agreement accordingly.
