UNESCO's World Heritage Committee on Thursday adopted a resolution stating that Japan has failed to provide a sufficient explanation about wartime workers from the Korean Peninsula at its Tokyo information center on industrial locations listed as World Cultural Heritage sites.

The adoption of the resolution came during a virtual session of the committee that started on July 16.

The resolution concerns the exhibition at the Industrial Heritage Information Center on Koreans who worked in the Hashima Coal Mine off Nagasaki Prefecture, one of the 23 registered sites.
