Abe likely to forgo issuing message to meeting of Japan-ROK parliamentary groups

Asahi speculated that Prime Minister Abe probably will not send a congratulatory message to a meeting of parliamentary leagues promoting Japan-ROK ties to be held in Seoul on Friday in view of the renewed tension over history disputes. A group of some 30 Japanese Diet members is expected to visit the ROK capital for the annual confab and its leader, former Finance Minister Nukaga, is planning to pay a courtesy call on President Moon. The premier reportedly does not plan to ask the Japanese politician to deliver a letter to the ROK leader. A GOJ source was quoted as saying that “Prime Minister Abe has nothing to say” to the conference or President Moon amid the deterioration in bilateral ties.
