Japan PM arrives in Europe amid N. Korea tensions

Japan PM arrives in Europe amid N. Korea tensions

The 2015 agreement was "a promise between the two nations. We can not accept South Korea's unilateral demands for additional measures".

South Korea said this week that the 2015 agreement, struck by President Moon Jae-in's conservative predecessor, had failed to meet the victims' needs and resolve the feud.

January 11, 2018 (EIRNS)-Following his meeting with Toshihiro Nikai, Secretary General of Japan's ruling Liberal Democratic Party, and Yoshihisa Inoue, Secretary General of the Komeito Party (the LDP's coalition partner), Premier Shinzo Abe said Japan will "properly respond to" individual cooperation programs related to the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, Xinhua reported.

Yoshihide Suga, the top Japanese government spokesman and the Chief Cabinet Secretary, said Wednesday: "Japan can never accept it if the South Korean side demands we take further measures despite the agreement that confirmed the final and irreversible solution on the issue".

However, Moon said in December that the wartime sexual slavery issue can not be resolved by the 2015 deal with Japan, as a secret agreement was found between the two countries after reviewing the procedure of the deal. "It is also important to deal with Korea's relationship with Japan carefully".

A 146-inch television will soon be available for purchase
With Cinema Screen Samsung claims a brightness of about 500 nits, half that of its standard HDR TVs and lower than OLED. Samsung has broken through the problems faced by the industry when it comes to such large screen sizes.

Representatives of 31 Japanese trading, auto parts, logistics and other companies are accompanying Abe, with the aim of tapping into the stable economic growth and relatively cheap labor costs in the Baltic and Southeast Europe regions, according to Foreign Ministry officials.

He said that although it was a political agreement, it excluded the victims and ordinary South Koreans.

This came after a government study found that the Japanese Imperial Army had forced women to work in military-run brothels during World War II with many of them "recruited against their own will, through coaxing (and) coercion".

On the security front, Abe will seek the European nations' cooperation in raising pressure on North Korea through the steady implementation of U.N. Security Council sanctions resolutions imposed over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile development programs, they said.
