Japan, ROK unlikely to hold summit in New York

Yomiuri wrote that the GOJ has decided to forgo arranging a summit meeting between Prime Minister Abe and ROK President Moon on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York. The paper speculated that Tokyo made the decision based on the judgment that it would not be appropriate to hold a summit meeting with South Korea when the ROK government is taking a hardline stance on the issue of compensation for former Korean requisitioned workers. However, the GOJ plans to continue communicating with the ROK government through opportunities such as a meeting between Foreign Minister Motegi and his ROK counterpart Kang in New York.
