The U.S. is trying to put the brakes on Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's moves to withdraw a 1993 admission of the sexual enslavement of Asian women during World War II, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported Sunday.
The paper said U.S. officials warned Tokyo late last year that Washington would have no choice but to react if it revises the apology by then chief cabinet secretary Yohei Kono.
What steps the U.S. could take is not known.
