New top Japanese envoy to arrive in Seoul next week: sourcesBy KH디지털2

Nagamine, 62, will take over for former Japanese top envoy Koro Bessho after coming to Seoul around Aug. 25 and presenting his letter of credentials to South Korean President Park Geun-hye.
His arrival comes after the Japanese government on July 15 appointed Nagamine, who served as deputy foreign minister in charge of economic affairs, as the new ambassador to South Korea.
He represented Japan in high-level economic talks that the two neighboring countries held in January.
The appointment of Nagamine, who is not a South Korea expert, as Japan's top envoy in Seoul is seen as a move to manage the bilateral relations in a stable way following a landmark agreement in late December on resolving the issue of Japan's sexual enslavement of Korean women for its troops during World War II.
Bessho served as Japan's top envoy to South Korea for nearly four years from October 2012 before taking office as U.N. ambassador in June. (Yonhap)
