Japanese lawmaker Antonio Inoki has held talks with North Korea's ceremonial head of state, Kim Yong-nam .
Inoki , a former wrestler who is in Pyongyang to co-host a sporting event, is thought to have discussed a number of thorny bilateral issues with Kim.
Last month, Japan lifted some unilateral sanctions against North Korea in return for its opening of a fresh investigation into the whereabouts of Japanese citizens abducted by North Korean agents in the 1970s and 80s.
