Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is urging lawmakers in his country to lay the groundwork for a summit between Korea and Japan.
Japan's national broadcaster NHK reported Wednesday that Abe called on Liberal Democratic Party lawmaker Nukaga Fukushiro, a former finance minister, to ensure parliamentary members use every possible channel to push for summit talks.
Fukushiro said that, while diplomatic ties with Seoul have soured, the two countries have a solid economic relationship.
A private two-day, Korea-Japan business meeting was held in Japan last week.
Korean President Park Geun-hye and Abe, who both came to power early last year, have yet to hold a bilateral summit due to strained ties over historical and territorial issues.
