Japanese media urges gov't to take corrective measures on "Battleship Island" forced labor issue Updated: 2021-07-27 17:08:36 KST

Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun has urged the government in Japan to take corrective measures in response to criticism from UNESCO.
It is saying that Japan needs to portray its whole history fully including the brutal forced labor of Koreans during World War II.
The same article released on Tuesday also said that Japan has so far failed to keep its promise of depicting the history of Japan's modernization in its entirety.
This is referring to the Industrial Heritage Information Center that opened in Tokyo last year, which came under scrutiny for saying that workers were not forcibly brought to Hashima Coal Mine, also known as "Battleship Island."
In a rare move, UNESCO adopted a resolution last week for Japan to report on its responses by December as it has not provided sufficient explanations on the issue of forced labor at that site.
