Little progress being made in improving Japan-ROK relations

Asahi wrote that both the Japanese and the ROK governments appear to be moving slowly to mend the soured relations. The daily claimed that although the two nations’ foreign ministers may meet on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York later this month, Prime Minister Abe has no intention to hold talks with President Moon anytime soon. However, the daily asserted that the Blue House is desperate to achieve a breakthrough in the bilateral stalemate, with an informed Korean source reportedly saying that Seoul is seeking to arrange a trilateral summit involving the U.S. so that President Trump can serve as an intermediary.
