UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein advised Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday to sit down and listen to the victims of imperial Japan's military sex slavery in person.
On a visit to Seoul, Zeid told reporters he realized once again how powerful human contact is when he met three victims Wednesday.
Zeid said if victims have a chance to "communicate their feelings" to the Japanese prime minister, Japan could find out how gentle they are despite their steely resolve to find justice.
Zaid added it is highly encouraging to see Seoul and Tokyo engage in bilateral dialogue over the issue, which should help the response to grow far beyond where it is at the moment.
