The President’s Office announced that it had agreed to host a Korea-Japan summit at the United Nations General Assembly in New York this week, but the Japanese side offered an “opaque” approach.
President Yun Seok-yeol and Emperor Naruhito are reported to have met and chatted in London, England amid a last-minute war of nerves between the two sides.

Japanese government officials are planning not to hold a Korea-Japan summit at the United Nations General Assembly this week, Japanese media including Sankei reported.
It seems that the Korean government has expressed dissatisfaction with the announcement of an agreement on the Korea-Japan summit earlier.
As sensitive issues such as compensation for forced labor under Japanese colonial rule had to be dealt with, it was also interpreted as a ‘war of nerves’ which was aware of the opinion of the Japanese public.
The president’s office declined to comment, saying the official position was “no comment.”
It is analyzed as a stepping stone to complete the schedule through contact with Japan without provoking Japan.
In an interview with foreign media before leaving for the trip, President Yoon said, “The issue of Korea and Japan should be resolved through a big deal, a joint settlement.”
In the subtle current between Korea and Japan, President Yoon and Emperor Naruhito attended the reception of the new King Charles III of England side by side, meeting briefly and chatting.
“Emperor Naruhito and King Philip II of Spain… Many people from the royal family joined in this condolence today.”
The president’s office said that President Yoon met and greeted US President Joe Biden and his wife, and promised to meet again at the United Nations General Assembly.
However, regarding the content of the conversation with the emperor, he said, “It’s not something I can say meaningfully,” and said it was just a greeting, showing a temperature difference between Korea and Japan.
