"I think the USA and Japan are in sync for this North Korea issue".

India and Japan concluded a Special Strategic and Global Partnership during the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Japan in 2014.

Kim met President Xi Jinping in China this week, his first trip overseas as the North Korean leader.

Kono, who recently met U.S. officials in Washington, also said Washington agreed with Tokyo that North Korea must abandon its medium- and short-range missiles as well as intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) capable of hitting the United States mainland. "We'd like to gather information on what they actually talked about", said a senior ministry official. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi is due to visit Japan in early April.

In the upper house budget panel meeting, Prime Minister Abe highly evaluated the worldwide community's efforts to put pressure on North Korea, saying the policy led to the latest China-North Korea summit and agreement to hold South-North and Washington-Pyongyang summit meetings. The apparent intention is to be ready to make behind-the-scenes arrangements with Pyongyang to explore the possibility of dialogue, including a bilateral summit.

"While the United States is viewed by North Korea as the only country that can guarantee its security, Japan is regarded as the only nation that can provide significant economic support", the source was quoted as saying.

"We will ask the Japanese government to continue seeking a country exemption from the new USA tariffs", Okada said, adding that Japanese aluminum makers will separately seek product exemptions. "It's nonsense to resume the six-party talks".

Trump's decision to meet Kim has sparked concerns in Japan that the USA leader could do a deal that would protect America's homeland but leave Japan vulnerable, while a rapid turnover in key White House personnel has meant Japanese officials are having to deal with a changing lineup.

This applies to the abduction issue, North Korea violating the aerospace of Japan via several missiles entering the tip of Northern Japan, and the concern of all parties in relation to the missile and nuclear programs of North Korea.
