The Sunday editions of all national dailies wrote that a source connected to the South Korean Foreign Ministry said on Saturday that the Yoon administration submitted to the ROK Supreme Court on July 26 a written opinion explaining the government’s efforts to resolve the issue of compensation for requisitioned workers by saying it is making diplomatic efforts to seek a reasonable solution that benefits both Japan and South Korea. The papers wrote that the Supreme Court ordered Japanese companies in 2018 to pay damages to the Korean plaintiffs for their labor under Japanese rule and that the procedure to liquidate these companies’ seized assets has been moving forward. The papers speculated that the move by the Yoon administration was aimed at avoiding the liquidation of the Japanese assets.
