  • JMH Summary

Asahi wrote that the Abe administration has disclosed that South Korean Prime Minister Lee Nak-yeon will likely attend the imperial enthronement ceremony to be held on Oct. 22 and President Moon has decided not to visit Japan for the event. The paper wrote that the governments of Japan and South Korea are making arrangements for Lee to hold bilateral talks with Abe during his stay in Tokyo. The daily noted that attention had been focused on who will represent South Korea at the enthronement ceremony amid the deterioration in relations between Tokyo and Seoul over such issues as compensation for former Korean requisitioned workers, Japan’s tightened export controls on South Korea-bound semiconductor-related materials, and the ROK’s decision to terminate its GSOMIA defense intelligence sharing pact with Japan. Yomiuri ran a similar report.
