Japan asks S. Korea to raise abduction issue at North-South summit

Japan asks S. Korea to raise abduction issue at North-South summit

The appointment this week of Mr Bolton - a former United Nations ambassador and strong defender of a U.S. first-strike option against North Korea - has raised concerns in Seoul over the prospects of the diplomatic thaw on the Korean peninsula.

However, in a lecture at a South Korean university on April 9, a day before Kono arrived in Seoul, Kang said she was not satisfied with the bilateral agreement.

The DPRK and South Korea have been improving relations since the beginning of the year and the leaders of the two sides are scheduled to hold a summit meeting on April 27, which will be the first in over 10 years.

On Monday, Trump said, "I think there'll be great respect paid by both parties, and hopefully we'll be able to make a deal on the de-nuking of North Korea".

Mr Trump has agreed to meet Mr Kim to discuss denuclearisation as soon as next month, though no venue or specific date is agreed.

In Pyongyang's first mention of official dialogue with the USA and the summit with Seoul, the North's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) added that Kim set "strategic and tactical issues" to be upheld by the Workers' Party.

"Denuclearization is, no doubt, going to be ... a US angle", said William Brown, a former intelligence official who is now an adjunct lecturer at Georgetown University.

85000-year-old finger found in desert points to early human migrations
If ancient humans could leave one environment for the other, they must have been quite adaptable, the researchers said. Scientists just gave the middle finger to the idea that early humans migrated out of Africa in a single surge.

The conservative leader also said the "fake inter-Korean peace show" marks the eighth time that the North has lied and that the incumbent administration is using the opportunity to increase support for the ruling party ahead of the June 13 local elections.

While the South Korean government continues to hold expectations that Tokyo will offer a honest apology, it has stopped short of seeking a renegotiation or review of the bilateral agreement.

Samore thinks Pyongyang's written denuclearization intent "will be sufficient for the first meeting".

"With the inter-Korean and U.S". He said, "It's less important that they make a detailed progress in their meeting than it is that they agree on broad terms of what they are trying to accomplish and where they end up".

"The government believes that cooperation with the global community is very important in resolving the North's nuclear issue and developing inter-Korean relations", the minister said.

The South Korean embassy in Washington and the US State Department have agreed to set up a hotline in the build-up to the summits, Yonhap reported.

They particularly cautioned that Seoul must stay tough on sanctions.
