In addition, the MDP today (14th) continued its onslaught on the Yoon Seok-yeol government's solution to compensate victims of forced labor in Japan, calling for its withdrawal.

In addition, during the ROK-Japan summit talks, the government demanded that the government implement the "four demands" aimed at suspending the normalization of the Japan-South Korea Military Information Security Agreement (GSOMIA).

Senate Minority Leader Park Hong-geun criticized President Yoon Seok-yeol, who was talking about future-oriented ROK-Japan relations, saying, "Three days after the government announced the method of third-party reimbursement, Japan's foreign minister officially denied that there was any forced mobilization at all."

"The naïve expectation of the Yoon Seok-yeol government that 'if South Korea unilaterally makes concessions, Japan will respond in good faith' is being cruelly trampled on," he said, adding, "The Japanese government, the perpetrator, has taken care of its diplomatic interests and pride, and the victim, the Republic of Korea, has suffered national damage and even humiliation."

Park said, "The Japanese government announced that it has recounted its islands after 4 years, including Dokdo. In order to improve relations with Japan, are you willing to give Dokdo to Japan?"

"Lawyer Lee Yong-in, who appeared before the National Assembly's Foreign Affairs and Unification Committee, even stated that the government's denial of the Supreme Court ruling is clearly unconstitutional and therefore grounds for impeachment," and asserted that "the incompetent and humiliating worst diplomacy of the Yoon Seok-yeol regime will only continue to amplify national embarrassment and confusion."

"At the ROK-Japan summit, President Yun should implement at least the following four points," Chairman Pak said, and he also presented "four demands," including suspending the normalization of GSOMIA until Japan's export restrictions are lifted, withdrawing the plan to discharge contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear plant, ending Dokdo's territorial claims and indiscriminate provocations, and enacting the right to occupy the 3th mineral district south of Marado.

Kim Song-hwan, chairman of the Policy Committee, also shot back, "A few days ago, Japan's foreign minister denied the forced mobilization itself," adding, "Even under such circumstances, President Yun is trying to force tributary diplomacy with Japan by mobilizing even the heads of major corporations."

He criticized the lifting of Japan's export restrictions, which have no real benefit to the country, as the price of reviving Iwan Yong and selling history, which is not fair," and that "the only end point of humiliating diplomacy with Japan is to participate as a junior partner of the U.S.-Japan military alliance."

The party's Japan Humiliation Foreign Affairs Task Force also held a press conference in the National Assembly to continue its offensive on the solution to compensations for forced labor.

The MDP will hold a press conference tomorrow morning in front of the Yongsan presidential office to denounce the government's diplomacy with Japan.

In addition, on the weekend of the 35th, we plan to hold a "Condemnation of Humiliation Diplomacy with Japan" in front of Seoul City Hall jointly with civic groups.
