TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida said on Friday he was arranging a visit to South Korea and hoped for an early resolution to a long-running dispute with Seoul over "comfort women".

Kishida spoke at a news conference after media reports that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had instructed him to go to Seoul for ministerial talks as early as Monday to resolve the issue of "comfort women", as women and girls who were forced to work in wartime Japanese military brothels are euphemistically known in Japan.
