ROK President Yoon says Japan and South Korea should engage in dialogue beyond history disputes

Saturday’s Nikkei wrote that South Korea’s presidential office announced on Thursday that President Yoon Suk-yeol told South Korean media that South Korea and Japan should engage in dialogue on issues beyond disputes over history. He made the remarks on his way home from Madrid where he attended the NATO summit. Yoon reportedly said: “We must reject the approach that without progress between the two countries on history issues, there can be no discussion of current or future issues.” The paper noted that although Yoon and Prime Minister Kishida attended the NATO summit last week, they did not hold formal bilateral talks on the sidelines due to the differences over history disputes, including compensation for former Korean requisitioned workers.
