South Korea's President Moon Jae-in and leaders of the country's major political parties vowed on Thursday to work together to resolve a worsening political and economic dispute with Japan, reports Trend citing to Reuters.

Moon met leaders of five parties to discuss Japan's recent export restrictions on some high-tech materials used by major South Korean companies, as well as a dispute over Japan's wartime use of forced laborers.

The political leaders said that Japan's export curbs were an unjust economic retaliation and agreed to work together to mitigate the impact the dispute may have on the South Korean economy, they said in a joint statement after the meeting.
