No evidence of bilateral negotiations between Japan and North Korea

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has expressed his firm commitment to holding a North Korea-Japan summit, stating his desire to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un without any preconditions.

“I’d like to meet Kim Jong-un for an honest and candid conversation,” Abe said during an interview printed in the May 2 issue of the Sankei Shimbun, a Japanese newspaper.

“Since the five abductees [Japanese who were abducted by North Korea] returned home, we haven’t managed to bring any other abductees home. That’s a bitter failure for a politician who has been working to deal with that issue from the very beginning,” Abe said.

Even with the unforgivable treatment by Japan in World War II of those countries, amazingly. they've had more deaths by their own regimes in the case of China and North Korea. Even that ruler of Taiwan, Chiang Khai Shek is pegged at being brutal.

It could be a little also  a bit that the Japanese invasions set the whole region hemorrhaging. I think there is some of that in the aftermath of WWII.

Rocket man just lobbed a missile at Japan...  That might put a damper on the meetings tone!
