Japan, ROK at odds over Tokyo’s decision to limit entry of South Koreans

Mainichi reported on the mounting tensions between Japan and South Korea over Japan’s decision last week to restrict the entry of Koreans as part of measures to prevent the infiltration of the novel coronavirus. Seoul is reportedly displeased that it was not given sufficient information in advance on the de facto quarantine measures for its citizens. The Japanese side reportedly gave the Korean side a “heads-up” only because it believed that “prior consultations” were not necessary. Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga reportedly told the press yesterday that Japan’s position was conveyed to the ROK side in advance and that detailed explanations on the measures were also given afterward.
