Sunday’s Yomiuri front-paged the disclosure by several sources that final arrangements are being made by the USG and the GOJ for Vice President Pence and Prime Minister Abe to release a joint document affirming trilateral unity with South Korea in stepping up pressure on North Korea. When they meet in Tokyo on Wednesday, the two officials will probably confirm that their nations will not readily enter dialogue with Pyongyang. They are also expected to agree on enhancing coordination to prevent the DPRK from evading UN sanctions resolutions. The daily speculated that the purpose of the envisaged joint document is to display to North Korea that the three partners will not compromise when it comes to denuclearization regardless of the Kim regime’s recent peace overtures.
