Most papers ran inside-page reports on a meeting held in Seoul on Wednesday between the chief representatives of the U.S., Japan, and the ROK for the Six-Party Talks. The papers wrote that the officials, including Special Representative for North Korea Policy Sung Kim, agreed on the need for “meaningful and new sanctions” on North Korea in response to its recent nuclear test.


Asahi speculated that following the U.S. House of Representatives’ adoption on Tuesday of a bill on strengthening sanctions on the DPRK, the U.S. official urged his Japanese and ROK counterparts to step up their own sanctions against Pyongyang.
