ROK foreign minister speaks by phone with Secretary Tillerson

Most Saturday papers reported that South Korean Foreign Minister Kang spoke by phone with Secretary of State Tillerson on Friday and explained that the Moon administration is committed to moving forward steadily with cooperation with Japan on the security and economic fronts irrespective of history-related disputes such as the comfort women. During the teleconference, the Secretary reportedly underscored the importance of trilateral partnership in resolving the North Korean nuclear and missile issue. Asahi speculated that Washington is concerned that relations between its two East Asian allies may deteriorate due to President Moon’s negative assessment of the 2015 comfort women accord.
