South Korea Friday dismissed the possibility for further military ties with Japan, citing Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit to a controversial war shrine. When asked about whether there is any scheduled exchange of military personnel between Seoul and Tokyo next year, deputy spokesperson of South Korean defense ministry Wi Yong-seop told a routine press briefing that he had no choice but to ask back whether it would be possible for any exchange to take place given Japan's untrustworthy behavior as seen in Abe's visit to the Yasukuni Shrine, Xinhua reported. The shrine is a symbol of Japan's wartime militarism as 14 war criminals, who were convicted by an allied tribunal for war crimes, were enshrined there.
