New ROK envoy meets with vice foreign minister 

Asahi, Mainichi, and Sankei reported on Saturday that South Korea’s new ambassador to Japan Kang held talks with Vice Foreign Minister Akiba on Friday. While insisting that the recent ROK ruling ordering the Japanese government to pay compensation to former comfort women constitutes a violation of international law, the Japanese diplomat reportedly asked that Seoul swiftly take action to rectify the situation.  


Meanwhile, today’s Yomiuri and Sankei reported that MOFA Asian and Oceanian Affairs Bureau Director General Funakoshi spoke by phone with his South Korean counterpart yesterday and agreed to maintain close bilateral and trilateral coordination with the U.S. in order to seek the denuclearization of North Korea.
