'US envoy Kennedy urges Japan, S. Korea to mend ties'

US Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy (R) shakes hands with Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida at Kishida's office in Tokyo on January 24, 2014US ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy on Thursday urged Tokyo and Seoul to patch up their troubled relations, a report said, amid simmering tensions between the Asian neighbours. Ties between the two American allies have regularly been strained by a long-standing territorial dispute over a group of tiny islands, and issues arising from Japan’s colonial rule over the Korean peninsula early last century. On Saturday, South Korean President Park Geun-Hye warned Japan that it would face “isolation” if it pushed ahead with a move to revisit an apology over wartime sex slavery. “I think that the two countries really should and will take a lead in this process, and the United States, being a close ally of both of them, is happy to help in any way that we can,” Kennedy said in an interview aired by Japanese broadcaster NHK, according to Kyodo News.
