President Trump reportedly urged ROK leader to improve ties with Japan

Yomiuri reported from Seoul that it has learned from multiple sources on U.S.-Japan-ROK relations that President Trump urged South Korean President Moon to improve his nation’s relations with Japan at their talks in Washington on April 11. The paper said it is unusual for the President to express concern over Japan-ROK ties, which have been strained over such issues as the court orders to Japanese companies to pay compensation to Korean citizens requisitioned to work during the colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula and a Korean warship’s illumination of a Japanese patrol plane with its fire-control radar. The paper went on to say that although President Trump did not refer to specific issues of concern, the sources claimed that the United States is worried that the deteriorated relations between Tokyo and Seoul will impact security cooperation between the United States, Japan, and South Korea.
