Japan-ROK Relations: Looking AheadVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Asia Society Policy Salon Tokyo
Since the inauguration of President Yoon Suk-Yeol, who has shown interest in improving ROK-Japan relations, we have seen signs of positive change in one of the most difficult bilateral relations in the region. What is the current state of the relationship, and what are the possible paths forward? How will this positive turn affect US-ROK-Japan trilateral relations?
