President Moon should address wartime forced labor issue: Japanese FM Updated: 2019-05-22 09:28:28 KST

Japan is upping its pressure over the wartime forced labor issue with Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono stating that President Moon Jae-in should address the thorny subject.
At a briefing held Tuesday Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono said Korea would not want to worsen bilateral relations with Japan and said President Moon should do more to resolve the issue.
Kono said he's been maintaining a restrained response as Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon was coming up with comprehensive measures but that after hearing Lee's response stating what Seoul can do is limited, the issue could no longer wait.
Earlier this week, Japan requested the dispute be settled through arbitration by a third party.
