"Contacts between Japan and North Korea are being made over various channels. The prime minister’s dialogue with North Korea is not a goal per se. A summit should aim to resolve a problem. At the moment, we are not considering a high-level direct dialogue," Taro Kono said.
Earlier, US President Trump held a summit with Kim Jong-un in Singapore, which resulted in signature of a final document, which included the agreement to establish new bilateral relations, as well as the decision to join efforts to "build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula." Japanese Prime Minister said that Japan supports signing of the document and considers it a step towards comprehensive resolution of different issues.
