Japanese PM Shinzo Abe urges S. Korea to bring response on issue of wartime forced labor Updated: 2019-07-22 13:25:37 KST

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has urged South Korea to come to the table and discuss the court rulings in Korea that ostensibly prompted Japan's trade restrictions.
These are the court rulings ordering Japanese firms to compensate the Koreans they forced to work for them during World War Two.

Speaking Sunday on Asahi TV, Abe said constructive discussions can only happen when Seoul engages on the issue.
He also claimed Seoul is breaking the spirit of an agreement signed by the two sides in December 2015 to promote cooperation.
On the trade issue, he claimed Seoul has brushed off Tokyo's requests to discuss it, but South Korea insists that Japan has refused its requests.
