TOKYO, Dec 19, 2012 (Xinhua via COMTEX) --
Japan's premier-in-waiting Shinzo
Abe said Thursday that he would seek close communication with
South Korea's presidential election winner Park Geun-hye to
enhance bilateral ties, according to Japan's Kyodo news.
Economic and personal exchanges between the two countries are
solid and they also share strategic interests, Abe said in a
statement after Park's victory.
Japan should closely cooperate with the neighboring country to
maintain regional peace and stability, Abe added.
Abe's Liberal Democratic Party won by a landslide in Japan's
House of Representatives election held on Dec. 16 and he is
expected to be the country's new prime minister on Dec. 26.
Park Geun-hye of South Korea's ruling conservative Saenuri
Party won tightly contested presidential election held Wednesday,
becoming the first female to lead the country.
