13 July, 2019, 16:39
Japanese trade ministry officials said the objective of Friday's meeting was to explain that the restrictions are a precautionary measure necessitated by South Korea's lax trade controls.
"The two leaders must meet and try to find a compromise", he told The Straits Times, adding that both sides stand to lose a lot. He demanded that Japan provide evidence for claims made by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his conservative aides that there may have been illegal transfers of sensitive materials from South Korea to North Korea.
The Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry also disputed a reported remark by a Korean official, saying in a statement that South Korea had not asked Japan on Friday to withdraw the restrictions.
Although Japan controls up to 90 per cent of the global supply of the sanctioned materials - fluorinated polyimide, photoresists and hydrogen fluoride - Russian Federation has reportedly offered to supply hydrogen fluoride to South Korea.
The brief glimpse given to media of the meeting suggested an environment that was anything but warm - the two Japanese officials remained stony-faced and sitting at a table when their South Korean counterparts arrived, offering no apparent greetings or handshakes before reporters were ushered out.

Seoul sees Japan's curbs as retaliation for disputes over former Korean wartime labor. At a briefing on Friday, Japanese officials said that the topic of supply chains was not brought up.
