TOKYO, January 3 (Itar-Tass) —— North Korea does not see any prospects for better relations with Japan, the KCNA news agency reported on Tuesday.
KCNA denounced the Japanese governmental decision not to convey official condolences to Pyongyang over the demise of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, who died of a heart attack on December 17, 2011. Tokyo offered only oral condolences, which Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura voiced. “This decision of the Japanese government makes the prospects for better relations between North Korea and Japan vaguer,” KCNA reported.
