TOKYO (Reuters) - Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Monday Japan supported the United States and North Korea’s “process” and wished for the latest talks between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un to result in positive developments, Japanese media reported.
“I hope that this summit will lead to progress,” Abe was quoted by Kyodo News and Jiji Press as telling reporters at the prime minister’s official residence.
Abe was speaking after Kim and Trump agreed on Sunday to push forward dialogue for making a new breakthrough in the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.
