Secretary Tillerson, Foreign Minister Kono hold bilateral talks

Saturday morning’s Mainichi, Yomiuri, Nikkei, and Sankei reported on a bilateral meeting between Secretary of State Tillerson and Foreign Minister Kono ahead of a UNSC ministerial meeting on Friday. The papers wrote that the two officials confirmed the need to step up pressure on North Korea.


Sunday’s Asahi wrote that Kono commented on Friday on Secretary Tillerson’s earlier statement indicating the United States’ readiness to hold dialogue with Pyongyang without preconditions by saying that the remarks were apparently misinterpreted because his explanation was insufficient. Nikkei ran a similar report adding that the Secretary told Kono at their bilateral talks that his remarks were misinterpreted.
