Most networks gave top play to reports on working-level talks between South Korea and North Korea on Monday, during which North Korea agreed to send a 140-member art troupe to South Korea during the PyeongChang Winter Olympics next month. Fuji TV led with a report that poisonous pufferfish liver was sold at a supermarket in Aichi Prefecture.


Major front-page items included a GOJ plan to evacuate Japanese nationals from South Korea via Tsushima Island in the event of a Korean Peninsula contingency, North Korea’s efforts to circumvent international sanctions in order to smuggle petroleum, the Land Ministry’s decision to permanently delete email stored in its computer server automatically after 12 months, and Kajima Corp.’s refusal to acknowledge its involvement in the alleged bid rigging by major general contractors for a maglev project.
