South Korea 'clearly' called for withdrawal of Japan's export curbs at meeting - Seoul official

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean trade ministry officials “clearly” called on Japan to drop its export restrictions on the neighbouring country at a bilateral meeting on Friday, a Seoul official told Reuters on Saturday, rebutting Tokyo’s claims that Seoul did not make such a demand.

The trade ministry official also said Seoul has not heard any complaints from Japan over Friday’s talks.

He declined to be named, because of the sensitivity of the matter.
