NHK reported online at noon today that at a news conference this morning, Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga said it is “extremely serious” that the ROK government has not taken any action to rectify the situation regarding claims for compensation made by wartime requisitioned Korean workers in violation of the 1965 bilateral agreement on such claims despite Japan’s request over a month ago to discuss this issue. However, when asked if Japan will take retaliatory measures, Suga was quoted as saying: “Japan naturally expects the ROK side to engage in discussions in good faith,” indicating his hope for a positive response from South Korea.
