    Background: AN AGREEMENT SIGNED IN TOKYO YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) PAVED THE WAY FOR NORMAL RELATIONS BETWEEN JAPAN AND THE REPUBLIC OF KOREA FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HALF-A-CENTURY. THE TREATY BROUGHT INTO SIGHT THE END OF A PROPERTY DISPUTE WHICH HAS EXISTED BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES FOR THE PAST THIRTEEN YEARS.

    UNDER TERMS OF THE AGREEMENT, DISPUTES OVER KOREAN SHIPS AND FISHING CRAFT HELD BY JAPAN AT THE END OF WORLD WAR TWO HAVE BEEN SETTLED. THERE IS ALSO SETTLEMENT OF OUTSTANDING LOAN AND DEBT PROBLEMS AND A LOAN OF 100 MILLION DOLLARS (GBP36 MILLION STERLING) FOR SOUTH KOREA FROM JAPAN TO AID WITH DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS.

    IN ADDITION, THE AGREEMENT ALSO CLARIFIED THE LEGAL STATUS OF KOREANS LIVING IN JAPAN, BUT IT DID NOT SETTLE THE OUTSTANDING CLAIM TO OWNERSHIP OF TAKASHIMA ISLAND, LOCATED IN THE SEA OF JAPAN, WHICH SOUTH KOREA CLAIMS AS ITS OWN.

    THE DELICATE NEGOTIATIONS WERE CARRIED OUT OVER THE FINAL STAGE BY MR ETSUSABURO SHIINA, JAPAN'S FOREIGN MINISTER, MR KAKUEI TANAKA, JAPAN'S FINANCE MINISTER, AND MR TON WON LEE, SOUTH KOREA'S FOREIGN MINISTER. MR LEE RETURNED TO SEOUL AFTER THE SIGNING CEREMONY.
