South Korea's Presidential Office on Tuesday hailed the U.S. congress's approval of a resolution condemning Japan's sexual enslavement of women during World War II, urging Japan to reach a reconciliation with Asian neighbors " through an honest review of history."

The resolution is expected to offer a chance for the Japanese government to change its attitude toward history, said Presidential Office Spokesman Cheon Ho-seon at a briefing.

"The Japanese government must be well aware that the best way to reach a reconciliation is through an honest review of history. We can be very good neighbors," Cheon said, adding "we expect a changed attitude on the part of the Japanese government."

The U.S. Congress approved the Resolution 121 on Monday, which demands Japan to "formally acknowledge, apologize, and accept historical responsibility in a clear and unequivocal manner" for coercing young women into sexual slavery.
