  • Japan wants its own North Korea summit

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

In another tweet, he said: "Received message last night from XI JINPING of China that his meeting with KIM JONG UN went very well and that KIM looks forward to his meeting with me".

Addressing a gathering of the diaspora in Tokyo, Indian External Affairs Minister (EAM) Sushma Swaraj said that India's relations with Japan have strengthened under the leadership of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

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 said.

A collection of North Korean briefing papers alluded to a tentative June date for the summit, Asahi reported.

North Korea has agreed to summit talks with South Korea in late April, and is also moving to arrange a meeting between Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump by the end of May.

Mets slugger Rusty Staub dead at 73
Staub, a six-time all-star, played 23 seasons from 1963 to 1985 with Houston, Montreal, the Mets, Detroit and Texas. The Mets came close to derailing what would become a three-peat dynasty in Oakland, losing in seven games.

However, Russian Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said, "So far, a Russian-North Korean summit is not on the agenda".

Also Thursday, China's top diplomat, State Councillor Yang Jiechi, was due in Seoul to brief Moon on Kim's secretive visit to Beijing.

Japan's Foreign Minister Taro Kono speaks during an interview with Reuters at the Foreign Ministry in Tokyo, Japan March 27, 2018.

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. 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.

Those steps include resolving the abductee issue, as well as Pyongyang's missile and nuclear weapons development. Tokyo suspects that hundreds more may have been taken.
