LDP vice president, Russian foreign minister agree to cooperate over North Korea

Most papers ran inside-page reports on a meeting between LDP Vice President Komura and Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov in Moscow on Tuesday, during which they agreed that the two countries should cooperate in seeking a new UNSC resolution against North Korea over its nuclear test. Komura handed Lavrov a letter from Prime Minister Abe addressed to Russian President Putin in which Abe expressed his desire for talks with Putin to discuss such issues as North Korea and the Northern Territories.

 

However, Mainichi added that the Russian official criticized the United States’ promotion of missile defense systems with Japan and South Korea as causing concern in Russia and China. Komura responded that missile defense cooperation with the U.S. is critically important for Japan’s national security in the face of the real threat posed by North Korea.
