Japan to end territorial dispute with S Korea

Japan's new Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on January 04, 2013 sent a special envoy to Seoul, the foreign ministry said, in an early attempt to mend fences over a territorial dispute.

Veteran lawmaker and former finance minister Fukushiro Nukaga left Haneda airport Friday bound for the South Korean capital bearing Abe's message to president-elect Park Geun-Hye. 

"As both Japan and South Korea have new governments, I would like to play the role of mediator so that this year can be a good one for the two countries," Nukaga told reporters at the airport.
