Asahi wrote that Finance Minister Aso plans to visit Seoul to conduct treasury dialogue with his ROK counterpart on Saturday, noting that the Japanese government is hopeful that Seoul will agree to reinstate a bilateral currency swap accord designed to strengthen safeguards against financial market turbulence. It has become possible to hold the first treasury dialogue in 18 months on account of growing rapprochement between Tokyo and Seoul following the comfort women pact last December.
