Sunday’s Tokyo Shimbun took up the disclosure by several sources involved in U.S.-Japan relations that during the Mar-a-Lago summit, Prime Minister Abe and President Trump are likely to agree to reject DPRK leader Kim Jong Un’s plan to proceed with denuclearization in a “phased, synchronized” manner in the belief that achieving the “complete, verifiable, and irreversible” denuclearization of North Korea will be difficult if “rewards” are given along the way based on the previous “action for action” principle.
