N. Korea and Japan resume high-level talks on Japanese abductee issue
North Korea and Japan have resumed high-level talks in Beijing, to discuss follow-up measures to agreements made on the issue of Japanese nationals abducted by North Korea decades ago.
The meeting comes about a month after the two countries made a deal in Stockholm on re-investigating the abduction issue.
In return, Japan has promised to lift sanctions and resume humanitarian aid to North Korea,.. marking a diplomatic breakthrough between the two states.
Today's meeting comes just 48 hours after Pyongyang fired two short-range missiles into the East Sea between Korea and Japan.
Japanese officials lodged a strong protest against the launch during the opening part of the meeting.
