Would be fantastic. South Korea leadership is ready to be friendly towards Japan. It's the South Korean youth, as I've said sometimes, that has shown tremendous animosity towards PM Abe and anti-Japanese sentiment without a sole present-time justification.

Shinzo Abe said Tuesday he is arranging to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae In in China later this month,

Well if this actually happens it will be a first step in a positive direction. But if South Korea now claims that no such arrangements are being made...well, we're back to where we always are.

Great photo. PM Abe is cool, calm and collected. He is standing firm. Moon is nervous and stubborn, he is running away.

Japan holds all aces in the negotiations.

@ Hokkaidoboy, Superbly argued. Korean youth are the ones who mostly despise Japan, PM Abe and everything Japanese. The younger, the more anti-Japan. The few calm heads in SK are the elderly.

Nice pic. Why is 문 대통령 all pouty faced?

Who would want to meet with an unhinged individual like Moon. Can't trust a word this person says.

We all know the truth...

The ball has always been in S. Korea court when it comes to how close they want to be with Japan or not.

If S Korea wanted to be close to Japan we would already have best of relations. We Had them on previlage White List when they don't even deserve it. Especially not if you ask for more money, if you go back on aggrements signed.

abe san , it is time to belive that u are also Asian not white. World war ii is long over and the whites ( no offence ) are only skin colour. It is also time to understand that Asian people should help each other.

abe san , it is time to belive that u are also Asian not white. World war ii is long over and the whites ( no offence ) are only skin colour. It is also time to understand that Asian people should help each other.

How does;

-Allowing a SK Court to violate the 1965 Treaty

-Refusing to accept the Arbitration Clause in the 1965 to even affirm SK's position

-Reversing the "irreversible" 2015 CW Agreement

-Refusing to provide the export information required to be on Japan's White List

Refusing to settle the Liancourt Rocks dispute before the ICJ THREE times

Show a willingness to "help each other" on Soth Korea's part?
