President Trump to meet with Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12

All national papers gave top play to reports on President Trump’s tweet on Thursday disclosing that his meeting with Kim Jong Un will take place in Singapore on June 12. Asahi wrote that although Kim has expressed his intention to denuclearize, attention will be focused on how denuclearization will be implemented. Yomiuri and Mainichi wrote that the focal point of the summit will be whether the two leaders are able to reach a concrete agreement on the “complete denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula. Nikkei analyzed that the upcoming U.S.-DPRK summit may become a critical turning point for the security of East Asia, including the Korean Peninsula, and will likely have a major impact on Japan’s security and foreign policy strategies.
