The meeting of South Korean President Mun Zhe In and DPRK leader Kim Jong-no will be held on April 27. In the published menu there is a mousse of mango with a slice of white chocolate, which depicts the flag of the Korean peninsula with the islands of Liancourt. After the Second World War, they belong to the South Korean side, but Japan has contested their possession for several years.
The press service of the Japanese Foreign Ministry demanded that the South Korean side abandon this dessert or at least remove the islands from the flag. In addition, guests will be served a specialty – buckwheat noodles in broth with pieces of meat and vegetables.
In 2017, Japan also expressed dissatisfaction about food in South Korea: during the visit of Donald Trump, he was served shrimp caught from the Liancourt Islands.
