Nippon Steel 'regrets' South Korea court decision on forced labor

TOKYO (Reuters) - Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp said on Tuesday a ruling by South Korea’s top court that the Japanese company should compensate four South Koreans for their forced labor during World War Two is “deeply regrettable”.

Nippon Steel said it would carefully review the court decision, taking into account the Japanese government’s response.
