South Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs: South Korea and Japan have narrowed their differences on the issue of forced labor claims Yonhap News Agency, Seoul, November 29 (Xinhua) South Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in an interview with reporters on the 29th that it is true that the differences between South Korea and Japan on the issue of compensation for forced expropriation against Japan under negotiation have narrowed. South Korea and Japan are discussing more specific solutions, but it is too early to say which particular plan is being focused on. South Korean President Yoon Seok-yue held talks with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on the 13th, and the foreign ministries of the two countries held a director-level dialogue in Tokyo on the 24th to conduct close consultations on the issue of forced expropriation and compensation. It has been observed that the so-called candidate plan for narrowing differences may be carried out by the Japanese Imperial Forced Victim Support Foundation in South Korea in the form of repaying debts to victims, and the funds are raised by South Korean and Japanese private companies, rather than directly asking for compensation. Some experts believe that the third party's acquisition of the debt of the defendant Japanese company does not require the consent of the creditor, that is, the victim, but there are also objections within the legal profession. The victim believes that even if the debt is paid off by a third party, the defendant company must apologize and participate in fundraising, but there is no clear signal that the Japanese side is willing to accept it.
