South Korea and Japan seem to have made little progress during talks on a number of thorny issues between the two geographical neighbors.
Director general for Asia and Pacific affairs at Seoul's foreign ministry, Lee Sang-ryeol met Monday with his Japanese counterpart Takehiro Funakoshi.
They discussed the Korean victims of Japan's wartime forced labor and Tokyo's wartime sexual enslavement of Korean women.
They also talked about territorial issues regarding Dokdo, controversy over Japan's industrial sites that have been listed as World Cultural Heritage sites, as well as Tokyo's plans to release contaminated water from Fukushima into the sea.
Despite no meaningful progress being made, the two sides agreed to continue dialogue.
