On Nov,4, ASEAN puls three international conference was held in Bangkok,Thailand. Then Prim ministor of Japan,Mr.Abe and President of South Korea,Mr.Mun had a short talking. And the photo of the talking was published by Korean media.
However the short talking was un-planed meeting which Mr. Mun asked it suddenly.Therefore basically there was no media.There were some persons expect Mr.Abe and Mr.Mun. Therefore nobody knows on Japan side who took the photo. Some related person of both goverments said it was taken by one of a high level officer or South Korea. And Japanese government did not approved to take the photo and published it.It seems that South Korea goverment want to show it to Korean people as one of propaganda which Mr.Mun make an effort to improve the relationshipe with Japan. On the other hand,Japanese government signify a feeling of disconfort about their behavior. A high level officer of Japanese foreign ministry said that there was no rule in writing about disclosing meeting content or photo of un-official meeting by principals. However getting approval before disclosing it is common sense in foreign diplomacy. It means South Korean government didn't follow to the manners. This is South Korea and their common sense.
