Kono comments on latest DPRK projectile launch

Nikkei front-paged a report on Saturday on Foreign Minister Kono’s comments on North Korea’s latest projectile launch in light of both the U.S. and Japanese governments determining that the projectiles were ballistic missiles. Kono was quoted as telling reporters in Moscow on Friday that the launch was a “clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions.” He said that Japan will closely cooperate with the U.S. and the ROK to make sure that the international community continues to fully implement the resolutions.


Meanwhile, Mainichi reported on Saturday that the Japanese government’s policy of seeking an “unconditional” summit with the DPRK remains unchanged.
