Japan must avoid bilateral trade talks with U.S.: finance minister Taro Aso

Japan must avoid bilateral trade talks with U.S.: finance minister Taro Aso

"The Japanese government has recently indicated an interest in holding a summit meeting with North Korea through communications going through the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon)", the document states, referring to the pro-Pyongyang organization in Tokyo that serves as the North's de facto embassy in the absence of formal diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The newspaper, in an article from Seoul, said the Kim government had discussed the possibility of summits with South Korea, the United States, China, Japan and Russian Federation, in that order. "North Korea summit in May".

Mr Kim met President Xi Jinping in China this week, his first trip overseas since taking over as North Korean leader in 2011.

In this image taken from video footage run Wednesday, March 28, 2018, by China's CCTV, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, left, and Chinese President Xi Jinping shake hands in Beijing, China.

In the upper house budget panel meeting, Prime Minister Abe highly evaluated the global community's efforts to put pressure on North Korea, saying the policy led to the latest China-North Korea summit and agreement to hold South-North and Washington-Pyongyang summit meetings.

Among the discussions will be the next steps in the Quadrilateral engagement between India-Japan-US-Australia, a project initiated by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in 2007, which was revived in 2017, with a meeting of officials of all four countries.

The Japanese government said it had been in touch with the North but declined to offer specific comment on the report. Another with US President Donald Trump is being planned for May. "The Japan-North Korea summit will be held in Pyongyang in early June following the U.S".

He said worldwide society must get North Korea to completely abandon its nuclear programs in a verifiable and irreversible way and dismantle all types of missiles that can transport nuclear warheads.

Abe said he wants to remind Trump of his concerns during an expected trip to the US next month.
