9 February 2018

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said today that he wanted to convey to the world that cooperation among the United States, Japan and South Korea on the North Korean threat remained firm. Abe set to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in later on Friday.

He would also convey to Moon Tokyo's position on a 2015 bilateral agreement on "comfort women". Under the 2015 deal between Japan and South Korea, Japan apologised to former "comfort women" and provided a 1 billion yen fund to help them. But South Korea has said the agreement failed to meet victims' needs calling for more steps.
