Diet group meets ROK president, calls for “appropriate” response to forced labor issue

NHK reported online that a delegation of the suprapartisan Japan-ROK parliamentary union led by former Finance Minister Nukaga met with President Moon this morning and asked that his government deal with the ROK court rulings on former requisitioned workers appropriately since they run counter to the bilateral agreement on World War II claims. Moon was quoted as saying: “While the court rulings need to be respected, the government is discussing a response that attaches importance to the future-oriented relationship between the two countries.” Moon also reportedly said that he has raised Japan’s abduction issue twice with the DPRK’s Kim Jong Un and that a Japan-DPRK summit needs to take place at some point.
