Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said success at upcoming summits North Korea has planned with South Korea and the United States could also mean North Korea and Japan could normalize ties, Reuters reported quoting the South’s presidential Blue House.

“The success of the two summits means North Korea’s nuclear and missiles issue as well as the issue of Japanese abductees in North Korea will be resolved, and in that case North Korea and Japan will be able to move on from the past and normalize ties,” Abe was cited as saying in a phone call with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Abe also asked Moon to raise the issue of Japanese abductees in North Korea during the inter-Korean summit on Friday, Blue House spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said.
