The US President's top East Asia policy adviser, Dennis Wilder, says Japan should try to resolve World War II disputes with its neighbors China and South Korea.

Wilder made the remarks on Wednesday, one day ahead of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit to the White House. The issue of "comfort women" is key among the disputes.

Abe has personally apologized for what happened to the women. Though he says the Japan's official position on the issue has not changed.

An estimated 200,000 women were forced to serve as sex slaves for Japanese forces during World War II, most of whom came from countries being invaded by Japan at the time.
