Mainichi reported online on remarks made on a TV news show last night by Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga regarding an idea put forward by the lawyers of former requisitioned workers to establish a forum composed of political and business leaders of the two countries to discuss how to resolve the dispute. Suga reportedly dismissed the suggestion by saying: “We are not interested at all.” The government spokesperson underscored that since the dispute was settled under the 1965 compensation pact, Tokyo has no intention to offer a fresh proposal.
