Adjust font size:

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) has completed a documentary film about Japan's use of Korean sexual slaves in World War II, the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported Monday.

The DPRK accused Japan of forcing a large number of Korean women to become sex slaves after occupying the Korean Peninsula, quoting many documents and testimonies from survivors.

"There will be no future for Japan unless it makes apologies and compensation for its past crimes," the KCNA quoted the film assaying.

The film, titled "Most Hideous Crimes against Humanity in the 20th Century," was produced by the Korean Documentary and Scientific Film Studio.

It is estimated more than 700,000 Asian women including between100,000 and 200,000 Korean women were forced to become sex slaves, or comfort women, for Japanese soldiers in World War II.

Surviving sex slaves have all along been demanding an apology and compensation from the Japanese government, but in most cases their demands are turned down.

The Japanese government is yet to make an official apology for the war-time sexual slavery issue even though many countries including the United States have urged Tokyo to do so.
