Yomiuri, Asahi, and Mainichi reported that MOFA Asian and Oceanian Bureau Affairs Director General Takizaki and his South Korean counterpart held a teleconference on Wednesday. While the officials agreed to settle the bilateral requisitioned workers dispute quickly, the Japanese diplomat reportedly stressed that Seoul should take the lead in doing so. According to Asahi, they also exchanged views on Japan’s imposition of tighter control on Korea-bound strategic materials. Takizaki reportedly voiced concern about South Korea’s “unilateral announcement” to the press a day earlier calling for Japan to end the regulation quickly on the grounds that Seoul has already addressed the issues raised by the Japanese side.
