    DPJ’s Maehara on President Roh

    DPJ leader Seiji Maehara spoke about ROK President Roh on Asahi Television this weekend:

    On an Asahi television program on 20 November, DPJ party chief Seiji Maehara expressed the following judgment about the pursuit of a resolution sought by South Korean President Mu-Hyon Roh to the issues of Takeshima (Korean: Dokuto) and history textbooks: “I’m not sure what Mr. Roh is thinking–telling us to find a resolution to the Takeshima problem when they (Korea) are already actually governing it. On the textbook problem also, hasn’t he [displayed] a shallow understanding of Japan’s approval system?”

    I think all the chumminess probably comes from their shared genetic heritage.
