Video Report: Japan-South Korean Relations for a New Age (Dr. Junya Nishino, Professor, Faculty of Law, Keio University/ Director of Keio Center for Contemporary Korean Studies)
post date : 2023.04.14
On March 16, Prime Minister Kishida and South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol held a Japan-South Korea summit meeting, signaling a major improvement in bilateral relations. This was the first time in 12 years that the president of South Korea visited Japan on their own, instead of as part of an international summit with multiple leaders. With increasing regional security threats, such as North Korea’s nuclear weapons and missile program and China’s growing influence in the Asia-Pacific Ocean, how will Japan and South Korea accelerate this improvement in relations and build a functional cooperative relationship?
The FPCJ has invited Keio University Professor Junya Nishino to discuss what path Japan will take towards building a forward-looking bilateral relationship with South Korea.
The briefing was attended by journalists from Brazil, China, France, Germany, Russia, Singapore, UK and US.
