S. Korea, Japan vow close coordination on N. Korea

Security advisers from US South Korea Japan meet on North Korean summits Seoul The leaders also discussed the possible meeting between Trump and Kim

-North Korea summit in May, Yonhap reported.

According to the South Korean foreign ministry, Kang and Kono agreed that the upcoming inter-Korean summit and the talks between North Korea and the US will be a turning point for the issue of North Korea's nuclear weapons.

North Korea is warning Japan that sanctions and pressure will prevent dialogue between the 2 countries.

Abe's top ally, U.S. President Donald Trump, accepted an invitation earlier this month to meet Kim by the end of May - a stunning and unexpected announcement that came as the two historic adversaries dial back threats of nuclear annihilation and attempt to reach a deal on the issue of scrapping the North's nuclear weapons program.

The envoy told reporters that he had nothing to share at the moment and said he would speak to them when he returned.

In a meeting Saturday in Washington, South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung Wha told Kono that Seoul will "firmly coordinate" with Tokyo in addressing the abduction issue, according to the Japanese minister.

The DPRK contingent is expected to meet with the former U.S. Ambassador to South Korea Kathleen Stephens, government officials from South Korea and several academics.

Senior U.S. figures also remain skeptical of North Korea's willingness to denuclearize.

In May 2014, North Korea agreed with Japan to reinvestigate the fates of abductees but Pyongyang suspended the probe in February 2016 after being angered by Japan's sanctions against the North in response to the country's nuclear and missile tests.

The United States denies such plans.

Also on Friday, Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in spoke over the phone and expressed "cautious optimism" about the current direction of the Korean Peninsula.
