South Korea looking into several options to resolve forced labor dispute with Japan

Sunday’s Sankei front-paged a report from Seoul claiming that the Moon administration is still studying several options for resolving the requisitioned worker dispute with Japan, including the idea of having Japanese and Korean enterprises pay compensation to the victims that was immediately rejected by the GOJ when it was officially proposed in June. According to the article, other proposals include the ROK government joining Japanese and Korean companies in extending compensation to the former requisitioned workers. The daily projected that Tokyo would reject any option involving payment of compensation by Japanese firms, adding that if the seized financial assets of two Japanese steel companies in South Korea were to be liquidated, it would deal a “fatal blow” to bilateral relations.
