Foreign Minister Kono plans to visit U.S. this month

Saturday evening’s Nikkei wrote that coordination is underway for Foreign Minister Kono to visit Washington this month, potentially from March 16 through 18, to discuss North Korea’s nuclear and missile development with Secretary of State Tillerson and Defense Secretary Mattis. He is reportedly hoping to confirm the importance of applying maximum pressure on Pyongyang and is likely to ask the U.S. to hold joint military exercises with South Korea after the PyeongChang Paralympics end in mid-March. Other papers ran similar reports on Sunday.
