WASHINGTON, May 16 2013 (Reuters) - The United States condemned as "outrageous and offensive" comments by the mayor of the Japanese city of Osaka who said this week that Japan's military brothels during World War Two were "necessary" to provide respite for soldiers.

路透社华盛顿5月16日 - 美国抨击日本大阪市长桥下彻有关“慰安妇”的言论“让人无法容忍且令人作呕”。桥下彻本周表示,二战时“慰安妇”制度是必要的。

The remarks by Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto drew strong criticism from China and South Korea, two nations sensitive to what they see as any attempt to excuse Japanese abuses before and during the war.
桥下彻的言论遭到中国和韩国强烈谴责,中韩两国对日本任何为二战前及二战期间所犯恶行开脱的企图都非常敏感。

Historians estimate that as many as 200,000 sex slaves, known as comfort women, were forced into submission in the Imperial Japanese Army's brothels during the war.
历史学家估计,二战前和二战期间有多达20万女性沦为日军“慰安妇”。

"Mayor Hashimoto's comments were outrageous and offensive," said State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
美国国务院发言人Jen Psaki称:“桥下彻市长的言论让人无法容忍且令人作呕。”

"What happened in that era to these women who were trafficked for sexual purposes is deplorable and clearly a grave human rights violation of enormous proportions," she said, adding that Washington hoped Japan would work with its neighbors to address the mistakes of the past.
“那段时期被迫充当性奴的这些女性遭遇悲惨,这显然是对人权的严重侵犯,”她说道,并补充称华府希望日本与邻国合作,纠正过去的错误。

The Japanese government has sought to distance itself from Hashimoto's comments.
日本政府则极力与桥下彻相关言论撇清干系。

"The government's stance is, as we have said before, that we feel great heartache when we think about the indescribable suffering of those who experienced this," Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said, although he declined to comment directly on Hashimoto's remarks.
“正如我们以前说过的那样,政府的立场是,当我们想到那些经历了这些事情的人难以描述的痛苦时,我们非常心痛,”日本内阁官房长官菅义伟称,不过他不愿对桥下彻的言论直接置评。
