Pentagon official calls for reconciliation between Japan, ROK

Sankei took up a speech delivered at the Brookings Institution on Tuesday by Assistant Secretary of Defense Schriver, who stressed the importance of Japan and South Korea reestablishing their rapport quickly by saying that the protracted rift between the two allies could benefit China, Russia, and North Korea. The DOD official reportedly noted that Washington intends to play a constructive role in encouraging Tokyo and Seoul to mend their strained ties, adding that the three partners will eventually join hands again especially on the defense front in view of the regional security environment.
