Japan Proposes High-Level Talks with N. Korea Updated: 2010-07-20 00:00:00 KST

A Japanese daily reports that the Tokyo government has proposed high-level talks with Pyeongyang on the sidelines of the upcoming ASEAN Regional Forum slated to be held later this week in Hanoi, Vietnam.
The daily Nihon Keizai Shimbun said Japan has pursued a meeting between Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada and his North Korean counterpart, Park Ui-chun to discuss pending issues including the regime's past kidnappings of Japanese citizens and the March sinking of the South Korean warship Cheonan.
The communist state has yet to respond to Tokyo's call for dialogue.
Japan has not had official contact with the North since the last round of six-party nuclear talks held in China back in 2008.
