Abe to propose launching multilateral talks on DPRK denuclearization

Saturday morning’s Mainichi reported on the disclosure by several GOJ sources that when meeting with President Trump at the White House on June 7, Prime Minister Abe is likely to propose the establishment of a multilateral framework for realizing the denuclearization of North Korea in the event that the U.S. leader strikes a nuclear deal with Kim Jong Un in Singapore. The participants are expected to conduct coordination on sharing the cost of the IAEA’s verification of North Korea’s denuclearization measures. The GOJ is reportedly considering asking European nations to become members of the envisioned framework so that the idea will not be interpreted as an attempt by Tokyo to resurrect the Six-Party Talks.
