ROK leader calls for dialogue with Japan

All national dailies highlighted South Korean President Moon’s speech on Monday marking the 76th anniversary of the Korean liberation from Japan’s colonial rule. He stressed that Seoul is “always open to dialogue with Japan” on bilateral and global issues. However, the ROK leader stopped short of commenting specifically on the outstanding history disputes by saying simply: “Our two nations will be able to overcome the difficulties by exploring ideas.” The papers added that it will probably be impossible to find a solution to the disputes on the former comfort women and requisitioned workers under the Moon presidency, which is set to expire next May.
