Japan's Prime Minister says he stressed the need for continued private exchanges between Seoul and Tokyo during his recent meeting with President Moon Jae-in.
In an interview with TV Asahi this week, Shinzo Abe went on to say that President Moon agreed with him.
Abe also stressed that cooperation is a must, especially in light of uncertainties regarding North Korea.
On the two countries' historical dispute, Abe called on Seoul to stick to the 1965 treaty that normalized ties, but added the two sides agree that talks on the matter should continue.
