Japan, S. Korea to Consider Arranging Summit for December

Nagoya, Nov. 23 (Jiji Press)--The Japanese and South Korean foreign ministers agreed on Saturday to consider arranging a summit meeting between Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae-in for December.

The agreement came during a meeting between Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi and his South Korean counterpart, Kang Kyung-wha, following a decision by Seoul on Friday to extend its military intelligence-sharing pact with Tokyo.

Motegi and Kang met on the sidelines of a meeting of the Group of 20 foreign ministers in Nagoya, central Japan.

Referring to a dispute between Tokyo and Seoul over wartime labor, Motegi said the South Korean government is responsible for correcting the situation that violates international law.
