ROK National Assembly speaker to visit Japan

NHK reported that the secretariat of Japan’s House of Councillors said that South Korea’s National Assembly Speaker Moon Hee-sang will visit Japan to attend a meeting of parliamentary leaders of the G20 nations that will be held on Nov. 4 in Tokyo. The network noted that the ROK speaker reportedly said in February that an apology from then Emperor Akihito would resolve the comfort women issue. In response, House of Councillors President Santo told the South Korean ambassador to Japan that his remarks were disrespectful and unacceptable. The network said that Santo has not yet decided whether to hold bilateral talks with her ROK counterpart when he visits Tokyo.
