"We maintain dialogue with North Korea through various channels and tools, including the embassy in Beijing," he said, however dodging the question whether a possible meeting between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was being looked at.

The Asahi newspaper reported earlier that a Japan-North Korea summit meeting may take place already this June. According to the newspaper, this matter was discussed at a recent session of Kim Jong-un’s Worker’s Party of Korea.
