Sunday’s Sankei gave top play to remarks made by National Security Advisor Bolton to a group of journalists at the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo on Saturday, saying that the White House official reportedly said that the DPRK’s launches of short-range projectiles in early May “without doubt” run counter to relevant UN Security Council resolutions. The paper wrote that this was the first time a senior official of the Trump administration described the tests as a violation of UN resolutions.


Sunday’s Yomiuri and Mainichi ran similar inside-page reports, with Mainichi adding that Bolton said that the United States has not heard much from North Korea since the Hanoi summit in February. The paper wrote that the senior U.S. official expressed Washington’s support for Prime Minister Abe’s desire to hold a summit with DPRK leader Kim Jong Un “without preconditions.” Concerning Prime Minister Abe’s reported plan to visit Iran in mid-June, Mainichi wrote that he declined to comment but expressed the view that Iran will be on the agenda of the summit on Monday.
