SEOUL, Feb. 9 (Yonhap) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday expressed hope to form what he called "true friendship" with Japan but said Japan must first look squarely at the countries' shared history.

In a bilateral summit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Moon called for efforts to enable a future-oriented relationship between the two countries.

"I sincerely hope the two countries can be true friends that can communicate with heart. As I have repeatedly said before, I plan to work with the prime minister to enable future-oriented cooperation while looking squarely at history," Moon said, according to pool reports.
