Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe gave an answer to a question during a meeting of the Upper House Budget Committee last Friday, in which he said that his government would not revise the position on “comfort women” that previous Japanese administrations have held.

Baseball drama “Kano” has already hit it out of the park at the box office, picking up NT$150 million in ticket sales to top the Taipei charts since it opened on Feb. 27.
