    Abe is feeling left out of the Korean negotiations. That seems accurate.

      It’s not Abe’s country that has a demilitarized zone between Japan and NK. He does not need to be involved in negotiations. He can help pony up some money and get Japanese business investments in NK once Kim opens the door.

      Obs,

      I am curious as to how you come to that conclusion? There was nothing insinuating that in the video.

      Actually Abe stated many concerns and requests that relate to the negotiations.

      I am intimately familiar with Japan an one of the major issues for Japan is North Korea kidnapping Japanese citizens. A link is provided below…an part of the article:

      The abduction of Megumi Yokota while on her way home from school has become an emotional symbol of the enmity between Tokyo and Pyongyang.

      Japan suspects dozens more still missing were also abducted by North Korean agents in the 1970s and 1980s to train their own spies in the Japanese language and culture.

      How many taken?

      In 2002, North Korea admitted to kidnapping 13 Japanese civilians but the government in Tokyo believes at least 17 were taken to train Pyongyang’s agents.

      Japan has a vital interest and a major part in the negotiations

        Japan and Korea have a long standing history. It would not be at all surprising to me if Japan had some concerns about a reunited Korea and would like some reassurances. Pretty normal, I’d say.

        Hopefully, this will be better for all of us.

          Yes Sylvia, and as I have stated on a few occasions, Korea despises Japan.

          It all relates to WWII. Japan conquered the entire Korean peninsula and made most of the people slaves. Working in mines and factories in Japan during the war.

          When America was bombing Japanese factories, most of the deaths were Korean workers.

          I worked in South Korea and have many friends there. Worked in Choenan, home of Samsung and…..in Choenan the Koreans have a memorial dedicated to the victims of the Japanese in WWII. Many gruesome pictures.

          Remember when Pence was in South Korea? He visited this memorial and afterward the press asked: “Why was’nt he smiling?” If you go there you will understand why.

          And one last point, taking into consideration what I said above. Who do you think has the most fear of North Korea getting a nuclear weapon?

          It certainly isn’t the US. It is Japan. They know how the Koreans feel about them………and …..they have been nuked twice.

          Yes, Japan is a big part of the negations.

              And actually Sylvia, it is much closer to actual truth than just my perspective.

              During the time I was in Korea I was married to a Japanese woman.

              I actually could not tell my South Korean customers that I was married to a Japanese woman.

              I would have been shunned and told to go home. Additionally my ex informed / educated me very well on the Japanese culture.

              I can speak Japanese and have a degree in Internationy Business with major of Japan.

              My children also are fluent in Japanese.

              Not being prideful, just very educated on Japan and it’s people.

            There IS that. Amazing. I remember being so happy when the Berlin Wall came down and so happy for the Germans.

            But the Germans, well, they be Germans and just look at them now. They are scary. And I’m NOT just talking about Angela baby’s haircut.

      Maybe because our “old allies” have evolved into socialists, and we are following them down the drain. Whereas the Asian and eastern Eu countries are trying to achieve what we once longed for…freedom and prosperity. Once achieved, we became complacent and more interested in vulgarity and all of its extremes.

        They also recognize the Moslem threat for what it is and are keeping the Moslems out of their respective countries. Look what happens to the governments and societies of those countries that allow Moslems to infiltrate their societies.

        I’m not shilling for anyone, honest, but there is a Youtube channel titled headlines with a voice. I find it quite interesting, but I can’t always tell where she’s coming from exactly. Her last few days are about the English. The channel doesn’t allow comments so that moves it up a notch in my book. That cuts down on inflammatory stories.

      Don’t count macron in there, he just quoted on TV a guy who thinks Europe should be totally mixed race. We have new immigration laws which are basically open door. During the campaign he took his wife to a housing project where his wife would not be able to go without security, I worked there 20 years ago and we had to make sure we didn’t walk to public transport alone. It’s worse now. Anti Jewish riots ( big Jewish community) . He told them, “You are France”.

      It’s as if they don’t realise the end game for us is South Africa. Paris already has an ipso facto apartheid system. The only solution I can see is space travel.

    I am in tears as I write this! ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Our LION under his leadership has North Korea and South Korea putting an end to the Korean War. Something the following administrations could not do:

    They are golfing tomorrow.
    Wonder if President Trump and Abe will be accompanied by a top American golfer.
    When President Trump visited Japan, he and Abe played with Matsuyama, world no 4 last year.
    My guess would be Rickie Fowler, he lives in Jupiter, Florida.

    Most likely they might also touch on the China situation in regards to their expansionist tendencies in the South China Sea.

    I have to admit I got a chuckle of POTUS talking about their golf game. LOL PM Abe seems like a good man. It’s nice and sad at the same time that other world leaders treat our president better than our own congress does. With all that being said, POTUS has gone above and beyond in order to earn their respect and in turn they respect him. We are truly fortunate to have this man as our president!

    • You are perfectly correct about PDJT being shown respect and decency by foreign leaders. He has deserved it. Neither Democrats or Republicans show the same here. I loathe and despise our Congress and especially the so-called leaders. PDJT is running the government as a business and these blood suckers can’t handle it. The easy get-rich life as they knew it has ended and will remain so as long as the President is in office. That is why they can’t wait to get rid of him. Sad – to use his words. May they all rot in hell.
