Japan reopens stalled talks with DPRK on abductions

By Agencies in Tokyo ( China Daily ) Updated: 2012-11-16 08:05:31

Japan and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea began bilateral talks on Thursday in Mongolia as Tokyo hopes to use the opportunity to shed light on a series of decades-old abductions.

Experts said Japan is attempting to break the diplomatic deadlock with neighboring countries rather than improve ties with the DPRK.

The talks in the Mongolian capital of Ulan Bator are scheduled to last through Friday.
