CCS Suga rejects DPRK’s claim that video of collision was doctored

NHK reported that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga told reporters on Tuesday that Japan absolutely cannot accept North Korea’s claim that a video of the collision between a Fisheries Agency patrol boat and a North Korean trawler was edited. North Korea called on Japan on Monday to pay compensation and take measures to prevent a recurrence by saying that the video was doctored and the patrol boat intentionally collided with the fishing boat in order to sink it. Suga reportedly said that the agency released the video so that the Japanese public would understand that the patrol boat’s actions were appropriate and added that Japan has repeatedly conveyed its position to the DPRK.
