South Korea, Japan agree to move past differences

SEOUL, June 22 (UPI) -- South Korean President Park Geun-hye said Seoul and Tokyo should put aside historical differences, signaling that the two neighbors are ready to move past old accusations.

Park read her statement at an event in Seoul in the presence of Japanese envoys – the same statement South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se read on Monday at the South Korean Embassy in Tokyo, according to Yonhap.

Speaking before Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and other Japanese officials, Yun marked the 50th anniversary of normalized relations between the two countries by saying it also marks a new entry point to a "new future."

Abe, who has previously said he upholds the 1993 Kono Statement that acknowledged wartime recruitment of Korean comfort women, said during the event that he welcomed a new era where the countries would stride together, hand in hand.

their actions should be a vehicle for other nations who are in conflict with each other
