NHK reported today that Minister of Economy, Trade, and Industry Seko and Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga refuted at separate news conferences this morning ROK President Moon’s criticism on Monday that Japan’s stricter controls on semiconductor material exports to the ROK “run counter to the history of the development of bilateral relations,” implying these were in retaliation for the wartime requisitioned workers issue. The two officials reiterated that the export control measures were being taken for the sake of proper management of exports for security reasons and the president’s comments were “off the mark.” TV Asahi also reported on Seko’s news conference.
