In their 40 minute meeting in Seoul Sunday arranged at the request of Takeo Kawamura, Japan’s former chief Cabinet Secretary and the current head of the Japan-Korea parliamentary group the two discussed ways to improve bilateral ties.
Lee expressed regret over Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga’s sending of a ritual offering to the Yasukuni Shrine, honoring Japan’s war dead, including 14 Class-A war criminals.
Lee also requested Japan’s support for Yoo Myung-hee, the South Korean candidate for the director-general post at the WTO.
