(Update) Tokyo Gives Frosty Look at Moon's Call for Dialogue

(Update) Tokyo Gives Frosty Look at Moon's Call for Dialogue

   Tokyo, Nov. 5 (Jiji Press)--Japan showed a frosty attitude Tuesday toward South Korean President Moon Jae-in's call for dialogue, as he proposed no acceptable solution over wartime labor during his talks with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
   "Our stance of demanding wise action from the South Korean side (to break the deadlock on the issue) hasn't changed," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a press conference.
   Suga made the comment a day after Abe and Moon held their first one-on-one talks in about a year, which lasted about 10 minutes.
   "The prime minister fully conveyed our country's basic position" during the chat in a Bangkok suburb on the sidelines of Association of Southeast Asian Nations-related summits, Suga said.
   Asked about the possibility that the two leaders will have 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."
