Foreign Minister Kono says Japan to deepen ties with South Korea in positive manner

Saturday morning’s Sankei reported that Foreign Minister Kono told a press conference on Friday that he will respond in a level-headed manner to the South Korean foreign ministry’s rebuttal of Japan’s protest against a banquet held for President Trump in South Korea, where “Dokdo” shrimp were served and a former “comfort woman” was in attendance. Kono reportedly stressed: “We won’t quibble about how South Korea reacted. Amid the North Korean crisis, it is important for Japan and South Korea to deepen ties in a positive manner.”
