S. Korea's Moon Raps Japan Again

   Seoul, Aug. 12 (Jiji Press)--South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Monday criticized Japan again, calling for national solidarity before his country marks the 1945 liberation from Japanese rule Thursday.
   Meanwhile, Moon cautioned against an excessive increase in anti-Japanese sentiment.
   The recently decided Japanese measures to toughen controls on exports to South Korea are "unjustifiable" economic retaliation, Moon told a meeting at the presidential office.
   Moon said the Japanese move "has its roots in historical issues," according to an English version of his remarks released on the office's website.
   The Korean Peninsula was under Japanese rule until the end of World War II.
