South Korea's Minister of Foreign Affairs Chung Eui-yong and his Japanese counterpart, Toshimitsu Motegi, held a 50-minute meeting in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. They met for the first time since the G7 meeting in London back in May. The South Korean foreign minister emphasized the importance of inter-Korean dialogue, engagement and cooperation in order to solve the North Korea nuclear issue. The Japanese foreign minister pledged cooperation to achieve substantial progress in the establishment of lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula. The two also discussed Japan's wartime forced labor and sexual slavery as well as export restrictions. South Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs says Chung Eui-yong offered Japan to work together on resolving past issues and urged Tokyo to withdraw its export restrictions as soon as possible. The Japanese foreign minister, for his part, urged Seoul to take appropriate measures on the issue of compensation for wartime forced labor and sexual slavery. South Korea expressed opposition to the release of radioactive water from the Fukushima nuclear plant, whereas Japan reiterated it has no intention to scrap the plan. The meeting has once again highlighted only the differences between the two nations' contrasting stance and the existing hurdles in narrowing them. On Thursday, the top diplomat of South Korea held a bilateral meeting with his U.S. counterpart and a trilateral meeting with the top diplomats of the U.S. and Japan. Topping the agenda was the North Korea nuclear issue.

[Soundbite] Chung Eui-yong(Minister of Foreign Affairs) : "(Did you bring up the end of the Korean War and the North Korea nuclear issue?) Of course."

Seoul says South Korea, the U.S. and Japan have agreed to bolster cooperation on achieving substantial progress in the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and the establishment of lasting peace. They also exchanged opinions on Afghanistan and Myanmar, and pledged to find ways to cooperate on climate change and public health.
