North Korea open to discuss Japanese abduction issue: Japanese official
North Korea is reportedly open to discussing its abduction of Japanese nationals over three decades ago.
That's based on a remark made to Japan's Kyodo News from Junichi Ihara , the head of the Japanese delegation that met with North Korean officials in high-level talks over the past two days.
Ihara said North Korea didn't reject Tokyo's demand for an investigation into the whereabouts of hundreds of Japanese nationals who were allegedly abducted by Pyongyang in the 1970s and '80s.
He also said he protested Pyongyang's recent provocations, including its threat to carry out a new form of nuclear test and its launch of medium-range ballistic missiles last week.
The government-level talks between the two nations were the first in 16 months.
