TOKYO, April 3 (Xinhua) -- Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida said Monday that Japan's ambassador to South Korea, who was recalled to Tokyo, will return to Seoul on Tuesday.

Ambassador Yasumasa Nagamine was recalled from Seoul as part of a protest by Tokyo to a "comfort woman" statue erected in South Korea's port city of Busan dedicated to women and girls forced to work as sex slaves in Japan's wartime brothels.
