(Update) Prime Minister to Represent S. Korea at Japan Imperial Ceremony

(Update) Prime Minister to Represent S. Korea at Japan Imperial Ceremony

   Seoul, Oct. 13 (Jiji Press)--The South Korean government said Sunday that Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon will attend Japanese Emperor Naruhito's enthronement proclamation ceremony later this month.
   Lee will stay in Japan for three days from Oct. 22, when the "Sokuirei-Seiden-no-Gi" ceremony will be held at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo.
   South Korean President Moon Jae-in will not attend the ceremony, amid strained relations between the two East Asian countries.
   Lee, who had served in a key post at an association of South Korean lawmakers promoting friendship with Japan, is known as one of the only few pro-Japan officials in the Moon administration.
   South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported that the participation in the important ceremony by one of the highest-level South Korean officials could be a sign of Seoul's intention to mend fences with Tokyo.
