Modi, Abe leadership has strengthened India-Japan ties: Sushma Swaraj

Making Prince brand better known outside Japan

The government of Kim Jong-un has informed leaders of North Korea's ruling Korean Workers' Party of the possibility of a summit with Japan, the Asahi newspaper said, citing an unidentified North Korean source and briefing papers.

The document praises the diplomatic skills of Kim Jong Un and explains the separate foreign policy directions to be taken in dealing with South Korea, the United States, China, Japan and Russian Federation, in that order.

Un had a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping but details of the talks have not been fully revealed.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is set to meet U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington next month before a proposed summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to discuss the crisis over North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes.

The document also noted that the Japanese government has put out feelers on a possible summit, according to Asahi.

Man arrested for wave of package bombs in Washington, DC
Each package found Monday was collected for further analysis by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and they were rendered inert. The packages sent to Anacostia-Bolling and the naval warfare center did not contain explosives, according to CBS News.

The two countries are also part of the recently revived quad that also includes the United States and Australia and seeks to work for peace and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region.

The paper extolled Kim's diplomatic skills and detailed the separate foreign policy directions to be taken in dealing with South Korea, the US, China, Japan and Russian Federation, "in that order".

Other officials say direct talks with North Korea will eventually be necessary to resolve the issue of the abduction of Japanese nationals by that country.

North Korea's state media has repeatedly criticized Japan in recent weeks, apparently as part of a strategy to raise negotiating conditions when dealing with Japan, a separate source said.

India and Japan will discuss cooperation in the Indo-Pacific in the first high-level meeting since the Quadrilateral and iron out growing worries over bilateral trade as External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj meets Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono in Tokyo on Thursday. According to the Japanese publication, North Korea is also hoping to acquire anywhere from US$20 billion to US$50 billion in aid from Japan on the condition it is able to normalize relations.
