The Japanese and Mongolian governments have coordinated with Mongolian Prime Minister Shinji Sukhoi on the next week to hold talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Japan's Kyodo News reported on December 5 that Mongolia has a deep relationship with North Korea. Abe intends to ask Mongolia to assist in the early resolution of the North Korean kidnapping problem.
The report said that Japanese and foreign diplomatic sources disclosed the matter on the 5th. Abe expects Mongolia to play a middle role in the kidnapping problem. When Abe attended the international conference in Russia in September, he held talks with Mongolian President Battullah and confirmed cooperation. He intends to strengthen the appeal and information collection to North Korea through repeated high-level dialogues.
In his talks with Hurez Sukh, Abe also plans to reaffirm the importance of fully implementing the UN Security Council sanctions resolution in order to achieve denuclearization of North Korea.
In order to advance the issue of kidnapping, Abe is exploring the holding of the Japan-DPRK summit. In Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, Japanese and foreign diplomats exchanged views on international conferences in June. The contact of intelligence personnel in October has also been exposed.
