All national papers highlighted a meeting held yesterday in Tokyo between Defense Minister Onodera and visiting Assistant Secretary of Defense Schriver, in which the senior USG official reportedly said that the U.S.-South Korea joint drills will be resumed after the PyeongChang Paralympics. In reply to the Japanese minister’s remarks emphasizing the importance of the two nations taking a concerted approach so as not to be taken in by North Korea’s “charm offensive,” A/S Schriver was quoted by Yomiuri as saying: “North Korea has done nothing to indicate that it intends to denuclearize. We should continue with the current approach.”
