The Japan-Korea Future Dialogue, which first began in 2013, involves experts and the general public in an open civic-level discussion on issues concerning Japan and South Korea. It is now heading into its 5th year.
With issues ranging from the Japan-South Korea comfort women agreement and the unpredictability of foreign relations under the new administration, Japan-South Korea relations are as complicated as ever. On top of that, there has been much tension in the region of Northeast Asia over North Korean nuclear weapon development and missile tests. Against the backdrop of these issues, at the 5th Japan-Korea Future Dialogue, we will discuss ways to improve bilateral relations, and topics concerning North Korea and regional peace. Through these discussions, we hope to determine the roles that Japan and South Korea can play, and propose these ideas to our respective governments.
Kazuo Ogura, the former ambassador to South Korea will act as chairman of the open session. Over 30 foreign policy specialists, politicians, academics, journalists, and business executives will be in attendance, including Yoriko Kawaguchi, the former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yuji Miyamoto, Lee Sook-Jong, president of the East Asia Institute, and Kim Tae-young, the former Minister of National Defense (South Korea). We understand that you may be busy, but we sincerely hope that you will attend this most important dialogue.
