    North Korea sets a condition for holding a summit with Japan

    In Pyongyang they remember that the Japanese prime minister declared himself ready for a summit without preconditions, although they do not know “what he really wants to get” from it.

    North Korea is willing to hold a bilateral summit with Japan if Tokyo is no longer “chained to the past,” North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Pak Sang-gil said Monday, quoted by the state news agency KCNA.

    According to Pak, “there is no reason for the DPRK to [Republica Popular Democratica de Corea] and Japan cannot meet.” However, for the summit to go ahead, Tokyo has to show that it is “looking for a way to improve relations.” He added that Japan was “crying out for the solution of the kidnapping problem” of Japanese citizens in North Korea, but stressed that the issue had “already been resolved.”

    In addition, Pak stressed that Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida also expressed the wish to hold the summit with Pyongyang “without preconditions” when he took office. However, North Korea “doesn’t really know what it wants to get [Japon] of this.” He added that Tokyo has to show its willingness to solve the problems of bilateral relations through concrete actions, not just words.
