Prime Minister Lee Nak-yeon, who attended today's event as the representative of the Korean government, said the relationship between Korea and Japan would be another step forward. Mr. Lee will deliver Moon's letter during his meeting with Prime Minister Moreh Abe.

This is followed by a clinical reporter in Tokyo.


Prime Minister Lee Nak-yeon, who had attended the crowning ceremony of King Naruhito, immediately found the memorial to the late Lee Soo-hyun, who saved the Japanese from the Japanese soil 18 years ago.

The prime minister's emphasis here is a symbol of friendship between Korea and Japan.

[Lee Nak-yeon / Prime Minister: (Imjin Dwarf and Jeong Yoo-jae are seven years combined with 35 years of Japanese strength.) It is foolish to undermine the history of friendly cooperation over 1,500 years because of the unhappy history of less than 50 years.]

Lee told the Japanese ambassador to Namimine, who was in farewell just before departure, "I don't expect everything to be solved in just one visit, but it will be a step further." Nagamine said, "I am very excited about the Japanese Prime Minister." "Wish good results," he replied.

Mr. Lee is now attending a banquet hosted by the king, and he is also interested in asking the king to visit Korea.

Tomorrow, the Japanese Prime Minister meets with Japanese political and financial leaders, and meets Japanese Prime Minister More Abe.

At this time, President Moon Jae-in's letter will also be delivered.

If the two countries seek compromises over issues such as reimbursement, economic retaliation, and military information protection agreements, we can expect a summit meeting within the year, but there are still many prospects that it will not be easy to reach an agreement in a short time.
