Japanese PM arrives in S.Korea for landmark summit

JAPANESE Prime Minister Fumio Kishida arrived in South Korea today as Seoul and Tokyo seek to restart their “shuttle diplomacy” and mend ties in the face of growing nuclear threats from Pyongyang.

Kishida is making the first official bilateral visit by a Japanese leader to South Korea in over a decade. He first headed to Seoul’s National Cemetery, where war veterans, including from the fight against Japanese colonial rule, are buried, to lay flowers and pay his respects.
