NHK reported online this morning that during a meeting with European and U.S. media outlets yesterday in Davos, Switzerland, Prime Minister Abe was quoted as saying: “Japan and the U.S. adopt the same position on the complete denuclearization of North Korea.” He also said: “Considering that the Diet is convening next week and President Trump is very busy, I don’t think a summit meeting will be possible, so I would like to speak with him by phone,” thus indicating his intention to hold a teleconference with President Trump before the President holds his second summit with DPRK leader Kim Jong Un in late February.
