The enmity will end after 12 years, Japan and South Korea become friends again, this fear is the reason for the decision!
Bilateral talks held in Japan and South Korea
The two countries pledged to improve relations after 12 years
Tokyo: 12 years later Japan and South Korea are improving their relations. The fear of China and North Korea is believed to be on the minds of both countries, so to increase their strength, they pledge a solid friendship. Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol met on the sidelines of the summit. Both promised to rekindle their ruined relationship.
According to CNN’s report, South Korea’s president was on a two-day visit, during which talks were to be held on an important agenda like economic cooperation between the two countries. It is believed that under pressure from the United States, South Korea wants to rectify its 12 years of deteriorating relations with Japan. Yoon also declared his support for a full normalization of the military intelligence sharing agreement with Japan in the wake of repeated ballistic missile launches by North Korea.
North Korea fires missile 1 hour before talks between the two countries
It was said in the report that just hours before the visit, North Korea fired its fourth ballistic missile. In a joint statement on Thursday, Kishida said Japan and South Korea had decided to resume bilateral security talks in response to North Korea’s nuclear and missile threats. Yoon said, “I think both countries should be able to respond to North Korea’s nuclear missile test.”
What was the dispute between the two countries?
The South Koreans accused the Japanese military of forcing women to work in brothels during their colonization. After this case, South Korea had to cancel its military intelligence sharing agreement with Japan in 2019. The bitterness between the two countries dates back to Japan’s colonial rule on the Korean peninsula a century ago. However, in 1965, relations between the two countries normalized.
