SEOUL, June 21 (Yonhap) -- South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha had a phone conversation with her Japanese counterpart on Wednesday for the first time since taking office, a ministry official said.

Kang and Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida spoke over the phone, during which the Japanese top diplomat congratulated on her inauguration earlier this week, according to the official.

The phone talks came after media reports showed that Japan's education ministry will announce an education manual on how to teach elementary and middle school students that includes Tokyo's renewed claims to South Korea's easternmost islets of Dokdo.
