TOKYO, May 20: Japan said Monday it wants to bring a bitter dispute with South Korea over compensation for wartime labourers to a panel for arbitration. Relations between the two US allies have been increasingly strained after South Korea's top court last year ordered a Japanese steelmaker to pay compensation to victims of a wartime policy of forced labour.
The ruling drew the ire of Tokyo, with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe describing the decision as "impossible."    -AFP
