S. Korean FM: Japan's military build-up brewing concerns in Korea Updated: 2014-07-10 07:01:48 KST

South Korea's top diplomat has stressed that Japan must be transparent with the direction of its defense policy to reassure its neighbors.
Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se was speaking with visiting New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully Wednesday afternoon, where he said Japan's recent military build-up concerns Korea.
In response, McCully said New Zealand Prime Minister John Key also stressed the importance of Tokyo's transparency while it is in the process of shifting its defense policy when he met Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe earlier this week.
