It is interesting to see what changes will occur in Korea-Japan relations, which have been in a long turmoil since Japan’s Kishida cabinet was newly inaugurated.
According to a poll, more than half of Koreans believe that the Japanese government’s forward-looking attitude change is necessary to improve relations between Korea and Japan in the future.
Reporter Han Yeon-hee reports.
The new Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida is known as ‘foreign affairs’.
With the inauguration of a new cabinet in Japan, expectations for a change in Korea-Japan relations have been raised, but for now, the outlook is bleak.
In his first statement of conviction after taking office, which was 6,900 words long, only two sentences were mentioned about Korea.
[기시다 후미오 / 일본 총리 (지난 8일) : 한국은 중요한 이웃입니다. 건전한 관계로 돌아가기 위해서 우리나라의 일관된 입장에 근거해 한국 측에 적절한 대응을 강하게 요구해 갈 것입니다.]
The South Korean government has announced that it will adhere to the existing position that the South Korean government must first come up with a solution to issues such as the comfort women, forced labor, and Japan’s export controls to South Korea.
How do our people view it?
As a result of YTN’s survey of the future direction of improvement of Korea-Japan relations after the Kishida cabinet was launched by commissioning a survey company Realmeter, 58.4% answered that ‘the forward-looking attitude of the Japanese government is necessary first’.
29.1% answered that ‘the government should be more proactive in improving relations’, and 12.6% answered ‘don’t know’.
By party support, 79.6% of the Democratic Party supporters answered that ‘the Japanese government’s attitude change is necessary first’, while 45.9% of the supporters of the People’s Power said ‘the Korean government’s positive relationship improvement’ and ‘the change of the Japanese government’s attitude first’ was answered. It was similar at 39.4%, showing a different pattern.
Also, in most age groups, ‘the change in the attitude of the Japanese government is a priority’ was the dominant answer, but among those over 70, ‘the Korean government’s positive relationship improvement’ was 40.2% and ‘the change of the Japanese government’s attitude first’ was 40.9%. was tightly counted.
This survey was conducted on the 8th of last month on 500 people over the age of 18 nationwide, and the sampling error is ±4.4%P at the 95% confidence level.
