Kishida comments on Japan-ROK relations

NHK highlighted a meeting at the Kantei this morning between Prime Minister Kishida and former Finance Minister Nukaga, who heads a parliamentary league on relations with South Korea. As the LDP parliamentarian and other members of the league plan to hold talks with a group of policy advisors to President-elect Yoon next week in Tokyo, the premier said to Nukaga: “Given the current international situation, including in North Korea and Ukraine, bilateral and trilateral coordination with the United States is extremely important. I want the league to improve bilateral ties with that fundamental stance in mind.” In response to a request from Nukaga for him to meet with the South Korean delegation, the prime minister was reportedly noncommittal, saying, “I would like to hear first [the outcome of the league’s talks with the group].”
