An estimated 20,000 people gathered… Criticism of Japan Diplomacy
與 “Lee has no right to discuss national interests”
On the 25th, civic groups such as the Action for History Justice and Peace in Korea and Japan held the ‘4th Pan-National Convention for Judging Humiliation Diplomacy’ at Seoul Plaza and strongly criticized the Yoon Seok-yeol government’s diplomacy with Japan.
They regarded the recent Korea-Japan summit as ‘traitory diplomacy’ and demanded the abolition of the forced labor bill. The organization said, “Citizens’ anger is increasing not only on the issue of forced mobilization, but also on Dokdo, comfort women for the Japanese military, the discharge of contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear power plant, and military cooperation between Korea and the US and Japan. pointed out. It is estimated that about 20,000 people gathered at the rally that day.
Political circles such as the Democratic Party and the Justice Party also joined in. Lee Jae-myung, the representative of the Democratic Party, also attended the event and argued, “The Yoon Seok-yeol regime, who was entrusted with power, only gave away at the Korea-Japan summit and received nothing.” Representative Lee pointed out, “Japanese agricultural and marine products contaminated with radioactivity may come to the table,” and “If (Japan) requested the import of agricultural and marine products, shouldn’t we have said no?” He added, “Did (Japan) protest ‘absolutely not’ when talking about Dokdo?
Regarding the compensation plan for forced labor, he asked, “How did a solution that was only beneficial to Japan benefit us?” “They didn’t concede anything, but instead said that there was no forced labor and just told me a bunch of additional bills.”
In response to President Yoon Seok-yeol’s comment that “there are forces seeking political gain by shouting for exclusive nationalism and anti-Japan,” Justice Party representative Lee Jeong-mi said, “The Korean people are more confident than anyone else while expanding exchanges with Japan in all fields and competing in good faith.” They are treating Japan kindly,” he refuted.
People’s Power said, “The Democratic Party and Representative Lee do not even have the right to discuss national interests,” regarding CEO Lee Jae-myung’s remarks at the rally. It is embarrassing to see them continue to fight over the street every weekend.”
