South Korea's defence ministry said on Tuesday it will work with Japan to enhance their security cooperation following Seoul's proposal on Monday to compensate people forced to work under Japan's 1910-1945 occupation.
A spokesperson for the defence ministry, however, said a dispute over a South Korean destroyer's alleged radar lock on a Japanese patrol plane in 2018 was not related to the forced labour issue, and that its stance remained unchanged.
