South Korea's Moon calls for talks to end trade row with Japan

South Korean President Moon Jae-in struck a conciliatory tone towards Japan today. He offered to join hands if Tokyo chooses dialogue as relations between the two countries have deteriorated. Moon said his country was willing to work with Japan to secure what he called fair trade and cooperation in the region.

Seoul and Tokyo are mired in long-running disputes over Japan's use of forced labour in the first half of the 20th century. The two neighbours have been embroiled in a tit-for-tat trade war that saw them remove each other from their lists of trusted trading partners this month. The step raised concerns over global supply chains. That came after Tokyo imposed restrictions on exports crucial to tech giants such as Samsung last month. This followed a series of South Korean court rulings ordering Japanese firms to pay for wartime labour.
