  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://japantoday.com/category/politics/update1-pompeo-voiced-support-for-japan-over-wartime-labor-issue-sources) reduced by 85%. (I’m a bot)

    > U.S. State Secretary Mike Pompeo recently expressed his support for Japan's stance that the issue of compensation over wartime labor was settled by a 1965 agreement between Tokyo and Seoul, Japanese government sources said Wednesday.

    > The compensation issue is at the heart of a bitter diplomatic feud between Japan and South Korea that has escalated into tit-for-tat tightening of export controls.

    > While supporting Kono's statement, Pompeo also called on Japan and South Korea to hold talks to find a forward-looking way to resolve their differences, the sources said.

  2. Good. It’s unfortunate Japan was such an asshole country all those years ago but settlements have been made and agreed to and drudging up this old dirt isn’t helping anyone.

  3. Well, yeah.

    South Korea is moving into the Chinese sphere because they don’t feel like they can trust the Americans. That’s what the falling out between them and Japan is really about.

    Of course the Americans are going to side with Japan.
