The Olympics, thorny issues of Seoul and Japan discussed during Trump's 2-day stay in Seoul

트럼프 방한 이모저모, 평창올림픽부터 일본정부 발끈한 독도새우

North Korea issues was the focal point talks during the summit between Presidents Moon and Trump.
But according to our Lee Unshin, other important topics including sports and historical matters was also brought to the visiting American leader's attention.
From the upcoming Olympics to the lingering issues between Seoul and Tokyo,... President Trump's 2-day stay in South Korea gave us many topics to talk about outside the regional security issues that dominated the agenda of the visit.
Upon arrival in South Korea, the U.S. First Lady Melania Trump first attended an event at the U.S. ambassador's residence - An initiative called 'Girls Play 2', aimed at encouraging girls to be more active and boosting opportunities for them to play sports.
With dozens of school kids and the head of the PyeongChang 2018 organizing committee,... the first lady stressed the importance of gender equality in sports, and that girls, too, love being athletic just like boys.

"As we look forward to the Olympics,... I call on all of us to encourage even more girls to play sports."

Later in the evening, the U.S. first couple enjoyed a state banquet hosted by President Moon Jae-in, which had some flashpoints for the Seoul and Tokyo relationship.
Moon personally introduced one of the guests to Trump - an 88-year old Korean named Lee Yong-soo.
She is one of the few surviving victims of Japan's wartime sexual slavery.
And among traditional and fusion delicacies served during the four-course meal,... a grilled prawn said to have been caught in waters off the nation's easternmost island of Dokdo.
While numerous historical documents including a Japanese map show the island as Korea's territory, Tokyo has been repeatedly claiming that the island belongs to them.
As a response to the dinner, Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga stressed the need to avoid any move that could harm Seoul-Tokyo relations.
