Abe Says Trump-Kim Summit Built Foundation for Denuclearization

Trump threatened to send 25 million Mexicans to Japan Report

Last Tuesday, US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un held a summit in Singapore during which Kim promised to work towards the "complete" denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

The Japanese prime minister, who has largely been left on the sidelines as the formerly isolated leader of North Korea has stepped up his worldwide relations, confirmed Saturday that he has launched an effort to arrange a summit with Kim.

Japan wants the talks to push the emotive issue of citizens abducted by the North decades ago, which has seen little movement despite a whirlwind of global diplomacy in recent months.

"I want to take a step forward and resolve the (abduction) issue after each of us breaks our mutual distrust", Abe said.

"It's a matter of course that the expense would be shared by Japan and others who will benefit from peace through eliminating nuclear threats", Abe said.

Tokyo maintains that Japanese nationals abducted by North Korea in the 1970s and 1980s remain unaccounted for.
