Tokyo's Posture toward Seoul Unchanged, Suga Says

Tokyo's Posture toward Seoul Unchanged, Suga Says

   Tokyo, Nov. 5 (Jiji Press)--The Japanese government has not changed its stance of demanding "wise action" from South Korea to resolve the current tensions between the two countries, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said Tuesday.
   Suga made the comment following Monday's brief conversation between Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae-in in a Bangkok suburb, their first one-on-one talks in about a year.
   "The prime minister fully conveyed our country's basic position" during the 10-minute chat, Suga told a press conference.
   Asked about the possibility of the two leaders having a full-fledged bilateral summit when they attend a three-way summit with China next month, the top government spokesman said, "Nothing has been decided."
   At a separate press conference on Tuesday, Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi revealed that Abe responded to Moon's call for talks between high-level officials from both countries by saying that diplomatic communication, including between the foreign ministers, is significant.
