Japan 'Respects' Trump’s Decision to Cancel North Korea Meeting

South Korea says North Korea committed to Trump summit and 'complete' denuclearization

A flag is pictured outside the Permanent Mission of North Korea in Geneva, Switzerland, November 17, 2017. In addition to his summits with Moon and Xi, Kim also has had two meetings with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The prime minister made those comments while visiting Russian Federation for a meeting with President Vladimir Putin.

"Unlike what the Failing and Corrupt New York Times would like people to believe, there is ZERO disagreement within the Trump Administration as to how to deal with North Korea.and if there was, it wouldn't matter".

Suga noted that Japan would "remain vigilant and closely monitor the situation", Kyodo News reported.

He said on Saturday the USA was still considering the 12 June date for the summit in Singapore.

"What Kim is unclear about is that he has concerns about whether his country can surely trust the United States over its promise to end hostile relations (with North Korea) and provide a security guarantee if they do denuclearization", Moon cautioned. Denuclearization remains the central issue of a possible June 12 summit.


Moon acknowledged Pyongyang and Washington may have differing expectations of what denuclearization means and he urged both sides to hold working-level talks to resolve their differences.

"Even though they share the same resolve, there need to be discussions regarding the roadmap for how to make it happen, and that process could be tough", he said.

The weekend talks were the latest twist in a week of diplomatic ups and downs over the prospects for an unprecedented U.S.

Moon said he held Saturday's impromptu summit - the second between the two sides in a month - after Kim asked for a meeting "without any formality".

"State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert says a 'U.S. delegation is in ongoing talks with North Korean officials" inside the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea that was created at the end of the Korean War. Moon said military generals and Red Cross officials from the Koreas will also meet separately to discuss how to ease military tensions and resume reunions of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War.

The KCNA statement said Kim and Moon agreed to hold high-level talks between their two nations on June 1, and to take steps to quickly implement their efforts to denuclearize the peninsula. But Moon said on Sunday he and Kim made a decision to meet again, rather than have a telephone conversation, as their aides suggested "candid" face-to-face talks between the leaders.
