Japanese, ROK leaders will likely not meet in November

Yomiuri front-paged a report saying that the GOJ has decided to forgo arranging a meeting between Prime Minister Abe and South Korean President Moon at least in November in order to see whether the ROK government will take action to rectify its violation of international law concerning the issue of compensation for former Korean requisitioned workers. The paper wrote that although attention has been focused on whether the Japanese and ROK leaders will hold bilateral talks on the sidelines of the ASEAN leaders’ meeting in Bangkok in early November or the APEC summit in Chile in late November, Tokyo has decided not to arrange a summit on either occasion and to regard the Japan-China-ROK trilateral summit slated for late December in Beijing as another opportunity for holding a bilateral meeting with South Korea.
