SEOUL--South Korea invited a former “comfort woman” to a state banquet for U.S. President Donald Trump and served shrimp named after disputed isles.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in held the dinner for Trump and his envoys at the presidential Blue House on Nov. 7.

The former comfort woman invited to the banquet was Lee Yong-soo, who has demanded the scrapping of the 2015 Japan-South Korea agreement on resolving the issue.

She greeted with Trump with a hug at the banquet.

Comfort women is a euphemism for women who were forced to provide sex to Japanese troops before and during World War II.

Lee, 88, has traveled to the United States to share her wartime experiences.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said at a news conference the same day that Tokyo relayed to Seoul its position on the disputed isles and the comfort women issue through diplomatic channels.

“The (comfort women) agreement two years ago is an affirmation of resolving the issue finally and irreversibly,” he said. “It is important to steadily implement (what was agreed upon).”

Under the agreement, Japan provided 1 billion yen ($8.8 million) to a fund in South Korea to help support former comfort women.

Moon, who took office in May, is calling for a review of the agreement.

According to a press release by the South Korean presidential office, a crustacean called Dokdo shrimp was used in a dish with stir-fried glass noodles at the banquet. The shrimp was reportedly caught in the Sea of Japan, where islands called Dokdo in South Korea are located.

South Korea controls the islands, but Japan, which calls them Takeshima, also claims sovereignty over them.

Expressing displeasure over the serving of Dokdo shrimp, Suga said, “I doubt the wisdom of it.”
