NHK and most commercial broadcasters led with scene-setting reports on today’s inter-Korean summit to be held at the Freedom House on the southern side of the Demilitarized Zone. The networks said the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and the development of inter-Korean relations will be high on agenda for the landmark meeting between the two leaders.


Asahi, Mainichi, and Yomiuri gave top play to reports on a Sendai High Court ruling that the deaths of 23 elementary school pupils in the tsunami following the March 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake could have been prevented if the governments of Ishinomaki and Miyagi Prefecture had updated their contingency plans. Sankei led with a report on today’s inter-Korean summit, while Nikkei gave top coverage to an EU plan to step up regulations on IT giants including Google and Facebook.
