China will try to mediate both sides of the Japan-South Korea trade war in a trilateral meeting in Chengdu in December.

Chinese officials informed their plans to Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at ASEAN Summit held in Bangkok Today, according to Japan-based Kyodo.

The South Korea-Japan trade war started last year when the South Korean Supreme Court ordered Japanese corporations to pay reparations for their involvement in slave labor on the Korean Peninsula during its occupation in 1910 to 1945.

 

The Japanese government claims the Korean court ruling comes in direct conflict with a 1965 treaty between the two countries that explicitly stated all war time compensation claims were “completely and finally” settled.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae-in met briefly in Bangkok on Monday.
