Foreign ministers of Japan, South Korea confirm cooperation for North Korea’s denuclearization

NHK reported on its website on a meeting between Foreign Minister Kono and his South Korean counterpart Kang on Wednesday in New York, during which they agreed to completely implement the UNSC sanctions resolutions and work closely to realize North Korea’s denuclearization. According to the network, Kono said: “I would like to express my respect for South Korea’s leadership in the last inter-Korean summit. I strongly hope that efforts toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula will bear fruit.” Kang reportedly said in response: “The inter-Korean summit laid the foundation for the U.S.-DPRK denuclearization talks to accelerate. Cooperation between Japan and South Korea is extremely important for making substantive progress in the denuclearization process.” The network added that the two ministers also agreed to establish a new format to exchange views on how to expand bilateral cultural exchanges as next month marks the 20th anniversary of the Japan-Republic of Korea Joint Declaration.
