Top S. Korean officials in U.S. to discuss trade spat with Japan

Amid the country's escalating trade tensions
with Japan,… senior South Korean officials are in Washington to discuss the matter with
their American counterparts. Working-level trade talks between Seoul and
Tokyo are also scheduled to be held tomorrow. Kim Hyesung has our top story. South Korea's Deputy National Security Advisor
Kim Hyun-chong arrived in Washington on Wednesday local time to meet U.S. officials and discuss
trade and security issues. "I'm here as there are many issues to discuss
with White House officials and lawmakers…" "Will you request U.S. mediation on Japan's
trade restrictions?" "That issue will certainly be discussed. Most definitely." Kim's trip came a day after South Korean President
Moon Jae-in urged Japan to refrain from leading the situation to a "dead-end" and respond
to Seoul's efforts to resolve the matter diplomatically. Tokyo imposed trade restrictions on key, high-tech
materials to South Korea last week, and Seoul and Tokyo clashed at the WTO over the export
curbs earlier this week. Seoul's top diplomat for Bilateral Economic
Affairs, Kim Hee-sang, is also in Washington, to meet with U.S. officials, including Marc
Knapper, the State Department's Deputy Assistant Secretary for Korea and Japan. He is expected to outline the potential impact
of Tokyo's controversial trade measures and the possible spillover effect on the global
supply chain of electronic products. South Korea's trade minister Yoo Myung-hee
is also expected to meet with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer next week. The trade ministry also confirmed Thursday
that working-level trade officials from South Korea and Japan will meet Friday afternoon
in Tokyo to discuss Japan's trade restrictions. It added that it will call on Japan to elaborate
on its allegations… that South Korea illegally exported items such as hydrogen fluoride to
the North,… a substance which can be used in chemical weapons. The ministry said the claims are groundless,
adding that South Korea has strong trade controls and that those materials were not shipped
to any countries under UN sanctions. Kim Hyesung, Arirang News.

  1. Japan 🇯🇵 calls on South Korea Not to smuggle Japanese products to North Korea!!
    It is too late to solve the problems!!!
    Japan can not trust South Korea anymore!!
    Bye bye Korea FOREVER!!!!

  2. All issues concerning the Japanese occupation of the Korean Peninsula have been settled by the peace treaty that Japan and South Korea signed in 1965. The Japanese government has nothing to admit to or apologize for. There is no point in hiding this film, you say? Why would they attempt to conceal such an absurd comedic film? Do you honestly think that Korean laborers conducted a candlelight protest just as Korean citizens did in order to push the former South Korean president into resignation? This is not a documentary film based on a true story.
    Furthermore, the release of the film started off pretty horribly. A South Korean professor advertised it in New York massively, using the photograph of a scrawny Korean man covered in dirt so as to show how harsh their labor environment was. However, it turns out that the man is Japanese, the photograph was taken in the Meiji Era and that It has nothing to do with WWII. A lot of Korean media reported this shameful act. You can easily find Korean articles if you search it up. In actuality, you guys are the one who are "fucked up". Hahaha.

  3. Please search this YouTube video.

    This is a video to deny the Koreans were slaves.  
    Testimony of Former battleship islanders


    Former battleship islanders"I was born there but l’d never seen houses with iron nars"

    Former battleship islanders"Iron bars? None."

    Former battleship islanders"Japanese workers were also there and died as much as Chinese and korean workers. "

    statements and false evidence
    here is a picture it has been shown to
    the world as evidence of one of these
    Koreans being forced to move to
    Gunkanjima to work in harsh conditions
    however this man was in fact Japanese
    and was unrelated to Korean forced

  4. "I am 92 years old, and I want to tell you the truth"
    Professor Choe Ki-ho of Kaya University

    and Japan increased Korean population twice in the annexation era.

    I was born in 1923. For the sake of South Korea and for Japan, I want to tell you the truth. Telling the truth could threaten my life in South Korea, but I feel it is my duty to do so.

    I lived in Seoul during the annexation period. I also spent some time in Tokyo. In those days, the Koreans were more proud of being Japanese than the Japanese themselves. At movie theaters in Korea, they showed the war news before the movies were played. For example, if they showed the image of Japan's victory in New Guinea, the Koreans shouted banzai and gave a round of applause.
    I loved movies, so I went to movie theaters in Japan as well, and the Japanese were calmer. Nowadays the Koreans who speak positively of the Japanese are criticized as "Chinilpa (pro-Japanese)" but in those days over 90% of Koreans were pro-Japanese.

    After the war, successive South Korean governments have brainwashed the youths with anti-Japanese education in order to incite hatred towards the Japanese.
    90% of history education in South Korea is distorted. In South Korean classrooms, our teachers don't teach how corrupt the Joseon Dynasty was in the 19th century, and they make their students believe that the Koreans could have gained independence without Japan's help.

    By becoming part of Japan in 1910, education, healthcare, industry and infrastructure in Korea improved dramatically. The foundation of becoming a modern state was built during the annexation period. Yet we teach in our classrooms that Japan's annexation set back Korea's progress.

    The Joseon Dynasty ruined Korean industry, and the Korean thinkers who advocated reforms were brutally executed. The Koreans today shout "brutal Japanese!" "sex slaves!" but the Korean ruling class (Yangban) in the 19th century was far more brutal.
    The final years of the Joseon Dynasty were so hellish that they would only compare with the present day North Korea.

  5. 99.999% of kpop has the same ideal face becouse they do plastic surgery with the same beauty standerd on it.
    Its resulted all the same plastic face.
    Even face line. Why do you think there is soooo many people totally the same ideal face line in kpop?
    It’s biologically impossible becouse korean has usually big jaw bone, wider sqwear face with higher cheek bones.
    It’s characteristic natural Feature of korean face.
    Korean do cut down those natural characteristics facial bone from the people by surgery and remake the facelines entirely different.
