Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol met in Seoul on May 7 and confirmed that they would strengthen cooperation in a wide range of areas, including security and the economy.

Their meeting, which came less than two months after their last one in Tokyo, can be described as a confidence-building measure. The two neighbors should actively continue this shuttle diplomacy to strengthen relations.
