Foreign Ministers of S. Korea, Japan Hold Talks

The foreign ministers of South Korea and Japan held talks on Sunday to discuss pending issues between the two nations.

Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se met with his Japanese counterpart Fumio Kishida Sunday afternoon at Japan’s Foreign Ministry in Tokyo.

The two ministers discussed issues regarding Japan’s wartime sexual slavery, including Japan’s legal responsibilities.

The two sides also exchanged views on Japan’s bid to win UNESCO Heritage listing for its Meiji Era industrial facilities. South Korea has demanded Japan include descriptions of the forced labor that took place at some of the sites in seeking to win its UNESCO bid.

The Japanese government is known to be considering erecting signs revealing that Koreans were forced into labor at the sites under Japanese colonial rule.

Minister Yun also conveyed Seoul position that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe should display a correct perception of history in his planned statement marking the 70th anniversary of the end of World War Two.

Yun plans to pay a courtesy visit to Abe on Monday and attend a ceremony at the South Korean Embassy in Tokyo to mark the 50th anniversary of normalization of diplomatic ties.
