A Good Start, Tokyo & Seoul to look at history

Japan is set to propose to South Korea that experts from both countries review their history textbooks used at schools as part of a joint history research program, officials said.

Tokyo is consulting Seoul over the proposal before Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi presents it when he meets with South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun in a summit meeting in Seoul on June 20.

Okay, yes they've tried this in the past. But it is something that needs to be done, they just need to work better at working together. Hat's off to them!
