Seoul warns of 'prolonged' trade row with Japan

Republic of Korea (ROK) President Moon Jae-in said Japan is wrong to use Seoul's sanctions on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to justify its stricter controls on exports to the ROK. In a meeting with business leaders, he said he was committed to finding a diplomatic solution, and urged Japan to be more open-minded. Professor Takesato Watanabe from Doshisha University in Kyoto shared his views.
