November 6 , 2019
Yamaguchi also touched on the meeting between Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, both of whom were in Bangkok, Thailand this month to attend an expanded summit of Association of Southeast Asian Nations that included leaders of China, Japan and South Korea. Yamaguchi said both nations must make “every possible effort” to engage in dialogue to resolve outstanding issues, regardless of the duration of such talks. He added that the two parties should take advantage of a possible year-end summit among the three top Japanese, South Korean and Chinese leaders that China is currently exploring.
