Japan minister says agrees with S.Korea that China's…

The team operates directly under Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and is headed by Oh Tai-kyu, a former progressive journalist who advised Moon on social issues as part of a presidential advisory group. However, the contentious issue of Japan's wartime sexual enslavement of Korean women was not approached.

The government earlier said that the two ministers will exchange views on issues of mutual concern, including North Korea's nuclear problem and bilateral relations. On her first visit to Japan since she took office, Kang stressed the importance of the bilateral ties between Seoul and Tokyo, along with their relationship with Washington when dealing with North Korea's provocations.

The two ministers reaffirmed that their countries will work closely, including under a three-way framework also involving the United States, and continue to put pressure on North Korea, which is moving forward with its nuclear and missile development programs. But the agreement has been under fire in South Korea ever since, especially with the victims themselves saying the deal did not go far enough and was reached without their consent.

A task force is now reviewing how the agreement was reached and expected to provide its assessment on the matter to the government by the end of this month.


A task force set up to assess the December 2015 agreement will submit their report on Dec. 27, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

According to the Yonhap news agency, Kang told reporters at Haneda airport shortly before Tuesday's meeting that she planned to tell Kono that the conclusions of the independent task force may not necessarily correspond with Seoul's stance.

The ministers are said to have wrapped up their meeting with a photo session, where their expressions were notably stern. After the meeting, Kang visited the Korean Cultural Center in Shinjuku to see the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics promotional booth, and she is also expected to make a courtesy call with Prime Minister Abe before she returns on Wednesday.
