SEOUL -- Six support groups for wartime "comfort women" denounced Monday's agreement by Japan and South Korea to resolve the issue, calling the accord a betrayal.

The groups referred to the South Korean government's willingness to try to accommodate Japan on relocating a disputed comfort women memorial in front of the Japanese Embassy in Seoul as a "humiliation." They called Seoul's decision to enter into the agreement by consenting to Tokyo's request "shameful and disappointing."
