Japan to pressure South Korea to lift seafood ban

Tokyo hopes to boost international pressure on South Korea to remove its import ban on seafood produced in eight prefectures, including Fukushima, according to government officials.

The central government will continue expressing its concern about South Korea’s import ban at meetings of the World Trade Organization, by saying that the South Korean measure runs counter to international trade rules.

Tokyo will appeal to the international community in the hopes that exports of seafood will be able to resume from the eight prefectures to South Korea, the officials said Tuesday.
