LDP members call for retaliatory measures against ROK

NHK reported at noon that at a meeting with LDP members this morning, Japanese Ambassador to the ROK Nagamine explained that in light of the comfort women and requisitioned worker issues, the bilateral relationship is in a “very serious state” due to the ROK’s “actions that run counter to the ideal of a future-oriented relationship.” Several Diet members reportedly demanded at the meeting that the Japanese government take retaliatory measures, including recalling the ambassador and international messaging on the ROK’s failure to abide by its commitments. However, an unnamed MOFA official was quoted as saying that it would be better for the ambassador to stay in the ROK to support Japanese companies there.
