TOKYO, October 11. /TASS/. Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso and his South Korean counterpart Choi Kyung-hwan on Friday agreed to resume regular bilateral talks.
The dialogue was suspended in November 2012 due to the aggravation of relations between the two countries.
“We agreed to resume the financial dialogue,” Aso said.
This was the first meeting between the ministers of both countries over the past two years. Japan and South Korea established the financial dialogue in 2006 to strengthen bilateral cooperation. However, two years ago relations between Japan and South Korea cooled down amid the territorial dispute on Takeshima islands and the pilgrimage of Japanese officials to the Yasukuni Shrine. Asian countries consider this shrine a tool of Japanese militarism.
