South Korea is expected to continue the suspension of a visa-free entry program for Japanese nationals for the time being.

At a press conference with foreign correspondents in Seoul, Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun expressed concerns over a recent surge in confirmed cases of the new coronavirus in Tokyo.

Chung said if the situation continues, there is a high possibility for South Korea to maintain its measures against Japan.

His comment came after Tokyo on Wednesday notified Seoul, through a diplomatic channel, of its plan to extend its entry restrictions on South Koreans.

On March 9, South Korea halted a visa-waiver program for Japan in a tit-for-tat response to Tokyo's decision to impose new entry restrictions for visitors from here over COVID-19.■
