Mutual trust between Korea and Japan has tumbled to levels not seen in at least twenty years amid the persisting bad blood over historical and territorial issues.
A joint telephone survey conducted late last month, but released by Korea's Hankook Ilbo and Japan's Yomiuri Shimbun on this Saturday shows more than eight out of ten Koreans do not consider Japan trustworthy.
Almost three quarters of Japanese respondents felt the same way about Korea.
This figure was the highest since the survey was first conducted in 1995.
Almost nine out of ten respondents from both* countries said they thought bilateral relations were bad.
More than 75 percent of Korean respondents said Korea-Japan relations will remain frosty if Tokyo continues to make historical and territorial assertions they consider unacceptable.
