Diplomats from S. Korea, Japan discuss series of issues, including wartime forced labor Updated: 2020-10-29 13:43:29 KST

South Korea and Japan held talks today on a series of thorny issues, including Japan's subjection of Koreans to forced labor.
Kim Jung-han, a senior foreign ministry official, sat down in Seoul this morning with his Japanese counterpart Shigeki Takizaki.
These were the first director-level talks since Japan's new Prime Minister, Yoshihide Suga, took office last month.
It's likely that they discussed the issues of compensation for the Korean victims of forced labor, as well as Tokyo's export curbs on Seoul and Japan's controversial plan to dump radioactive water from Fukushima into the sea.
They could have also discussed a trilateral summit to be held in Seoul this year between South Korea, Japan and China.
The Japanese diplomat also met Seoul's top nuclear envoy Lee Do-hoon.
