SEOUL -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in is looking to mend fences with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe one year after South Korea's Supreme Court ruled in favor of four wartime laborers seeking compensation from Nippon Steel.

The presidential Blue House said Monday that it is working to arrange meetings with foreign leaders during the ASEAN Summit in Bangkok next week and the APEC Summit in Santiago, Chile, being held from Nov 11 to 17. Moon and Abe will attend both.
