All papers reported that visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Wang paid a courtesy call on Prime Minister Abe on Monday, during which they exchanged views on the Korean Peninsula situation. In response to the premier’s call for bilateral cooperation to achieve North Korea’s denuclearization, Wang reportedly underscored the importance of resolving the standoff through dialogue. The two officials agreed to further improve bilateral relations through a visit to Tokyo by Premier Li for a trilateral summit with South Korea on May 9. The top Chinese diplomat reportedly told the press afterward: “We consider Pyongyang’s proposal to address its security concerns in a reasonable manner legitimate. It is important to move forward with denuclearization and a peace mechanism simultaneously.”
