S Korea, Japan seek to mount pressure on N Korea

The South Korean foreign minister and her Japanese counterpart will be holding their first talks in two and a half years to discuss the situation in North Korea.

    South Korea's Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha has arrived in Tokyo to meet Japanese leaders for rare talks.

    The countries have frosty relations stemming from Japan's wartime sexual exploitation of Korean women.

    But they have been pushed to build an alliance recently against North Korean aggression.
