Asahi, Yomiuri, and Sankei wrote that MOFA Asian and Oceanian Affairs Bureau Director General Kanasugi held talks with his South Korean counterpart in Tokyo on Wednesday, but the two officials remained apart over the issue of Korean requisitioned workers because the ROK diplomat did not accept Japan’s request for the launch of an arbitration panel on the issue. According to the papers, Kanasugi renewed Japan’s call on South Korea to lift its ban on Japanese seafood imports, while his ROK counterpart insisted that Japan should not single out South Korean seafood for more stringent inspection.
