Inter-Korean summit chairs to feature disputed islands

Inter-Korean summit chairs to feature disputed islandsSouth Korea has custom-made furniture for Friday’s summit between President Moon Jae-in and the North’s leader Kim Jong Un — with chairs featuring disputed islands controlled by Seoul but claimed by Tokyo. One thing the rival Koreas share is a resentment of Japan, which imposed brutal colonial rule on the peninsula from 1910 to 1945, and the gesture is likely to irritate Tokyo. Japan has already lodged a strong protest over photos of a summit dessert dish which also marks the disputed islands.
