President Park Geun-hye, during talks with the visiting governor of Tokyo earlier this Friday, asked him to help Korea and Japan improve their strained ties by sharing correct historical perspectives.
During talks with Governor Yoichi Masuzoe, who's on a three-day trip aimed at bettering bilateral relations, President Park expressed regret about the inappropriate remarks some Japanese politicians have made over historical matters.
She specifically referred to the unsettled issue of Korean women forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese military during World War Two.
She said it was a matter of universal human rights that demanded attention.
Friday's meeting was President Park's first with a Japanese politician since her inauguration last year.
