Tokyo: Abe to Use Summit with Moon to Urge Follow Through on 2015 Agreement

The Japanese government says Prime Minister Shinzo Abe plans to use a summit with President Moon Jae-in in South Korea next month as a chance to demand Seoul faithfully follow through with a bilateral settlement deal on Japan’s wartime sexual slavery. 

Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga made the remark during a regular briefing on Monday. He said the meeting between Abe and Moon will be held on February ninth, just before the opening ceremony of the PyeongChang Winter Games. The summit will be held at a hotel close to the PyeongChang Olympic Stadium. 

Suga also reiterated Tokyo’s claim that it will not accept Seoul's unilateral demand for additional measures to be taken over the agreement. He explained it is only natural for Japan to demand South Korea to sincerely implement the 2015 agreement. 

Regarding the North Korea nuclear issue, Suga said the two leaders will likely reaffirm their joint stance that it is necessary to increase pressure on the North to draw a policy change.
