U.S. Pressure May Be behind S. Korean Overtures to Japan

U.S. Pressure May Be behind S. Korean Overtures to Japan

   Seoul, Nov. 5 (Jiji Press)--South Korea's recent overtures to Japan may have been prompted by U.S. pressure reflecting concerns that the trilateral security cooperation would be affected if the two Asian nations' military information sharing pact expires.
   Seoul is seeking dialogue with Tokyo to look for ways to improve the bilateral relations strained over history and trade issues.
   South Korean officials said President Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had a brief meeting in a Bangkok suburb Monday at Seoul's request.
   On Tuesday, Moon said on Twitter that he had a meaningful meeting with Abe that could be the beginning of dialogue.
   Last month, South Korean Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon handed Abe a letter from Moon calling for a bilateral summit.
