Transport minister to visit Mongolia, S. Korea from Sat.

Transport minister Akihiro Ota said Friday he will visit Mongolia and South Korea from Saturday to next Wednesday.

The land, infrastructure, transport and tourism minister told a press conference he will inspect a construction site for a new airport in Mongolia and hold talks with senior government officials in South Korea on tourism promotion.

Although Japan and South Korea have not held summit talks due to tensions over a territorial dispute and differing views on history, Ota said there have been signs recently indicating improvement in relations.

"I'd like to push the trend further" through the visit, Ota said.
