Japanese and South Korean papers deepening cooperation

On Monday, publisher of the largest English-language newspapers in South Korea and Japan, The Korea Herald and the Japan Times, reached an agreement to exchange background information and stories in several fields. According to Asia Media, "during a meeting at The Japan Times head office, Toshiaki Ogasawara, chairman and publisher of The Japan Times, and his South Korean counterpart, Hong Jung Wook, reaffirmed an existing exchange agreement between the two papers and agreed to include 'prepublication intelligence reports' in their exchange."

The move is remarkable when thinking of the political tensions between the two countries that were still reinforced on the occasion of the anniversary of the end of the Second World War.
