AKIPRESS.COM - The Yomiuri ShimbunThe Japanese government is considering making contact with North Korean officials on the sidelines of an international conference on security in Northeast Asia to be held in Mongolia from Thursday, after the U.S.-North Korea summit meeting, according to Japanese government sources.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has expressed his desire to hold a summit meeting with North Korea with an aim to resolving the issue of Japanese nationals abducted by North Korea. The Japanese side intends to convey Japan’s stance to North Korea while probing Pyongyang’s intent through the contact in Mongolia, Japan Times reported.

The conference, known as the Ulaanbaatar Dialogue, is organized by the Mongolian government among others. Diplomatic officials including those from the Japanese Foreign Ministry and North Korea are scheduled to attend.
