` Japan hails the Summit Meeting between Shinzo Abe and Park Geun-hye and Brokered by Obama as chance to build a Rapport ‘

#AceWorldNews – HAGUE – March 25 – Japan on Wednesday hailed the first summit between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Park Geun-hye as a chance to build a rapport after more than a year of back-biting, AFP said.

The talks in The Hague were hosted by US President Barack Obama, as Washington is increasingly frustrated by tensions between its two major Asian allies.

South Korean media said Park appeared unimpressed by Abe’s attempts to speak Korean during a photo opportunity, and Seoul has yet to make an official statement about the meeting itself.
