Japan-ROK parliamentary union chair rejects offer to reconsider GSOMIA decision

NHK reported this morning that former Finance Minister Nukaga, who chairs the Japan-ROK parliamentary union, spoke with ROK Prime Minister Lee on the phone yesterday and told him that his proposal to reconsider the ROK’s decision to scrap its GSOMIA with Japan if Japan decides not to remove the ROK’s preferential trade status is unacceptable because it would not be a real solution. Lee reportedly told him that the proposal was made after consulting with President Moon, but Nukaga said the ROK must first show that it stands by its international commitments and is seeking a solution to the requisitioned workers issue. Lee reportedly indicated that the ROK would like to resolve issues through dialogue.
