Japan says N.Korea must commit to abandoning nuclear development completely
TOKYO, March 9 (Reuters) - Japanese Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera said on Friday North Korea must commit to abandoning nuclear development completely in order for meaningful talks to take place with Pyongyang.
Onodera was speaking after a South Korean official said U.S. President Donald Trump had expressed a willingness to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by May. That came in response to Kim's invitation to hold the first meeting between leaders of the United States and North Korea. (Reporting by Nobuhiro Kubo Editing by Paul Tait)
