Ep.114 Will Suga’s remarks prompt cancellation of the Seoul-Beijing-Tokyo Summit?

As Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga continues to make controversial statements regarding wartime forced labor, the possibility of Seoul holding a three-way summit with Beijing and Tokyo is turning uncertain day-to-day. Japan said Suga wouldn’t attend the planned trilateral summit unless South Korea guarantees not to liquidate a Japanese firm’s seized assets over a Seoul court ruling. Moreover, Suga sent a ritual offering to Yasukuni Shrine on October 17th. Some speculate that the latest Japanese actions are an indirect message, showing its reluctance to take part in the trilateral summit. We bring in experts to discuss this ongoing issue and how this would further affect the Seoul-Tokyo ties moving forward.
