April 7, 2015 – “Govt’s stance on comfort women clarified” (Yomiuri)

“Manabisha, a Tokyo-based publishing company, will publish a middle-school history textbook for the first time that will include a passage about so-called comfort women, something that no other textbook currently in use mentions.

The book was approved by the education ministry after it added the government’s stance on the issue to its original textbook. The addition reads: “There have so far been no confirmed documents to directly prove [the involvement of military and administrative personnel in] the forcible taking away of comfort women.”
