DPRK accuses Japan of seeking "ulterior" purpose in talks


10:41, September 06, 2012

PYONGYANG, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Wednesday denounced Japan for "seeking an ulterior political purpose" in recent inter-governmental preliminary talks.

During the talks, held in Beijing late last month, "both sides informed the other side of their stands on the inter-governmental talks that will be held regarding the issue of the remains of Japanese" buried in the DPRK, the official KCNA news agency quoted a foreign ministry spokesman as saying.

"They also discussed the issues concerning the agenda items, level, place and time for the talks and agreed to provide coordination through diplomatic channel in the future," the spokesman added.

However, he noted, the Japanese government and some media are saying that the DPRK has accepted the inclusion of "abduction issue" in the main agenda items of the talks and the DPRK is expecting sort of economic rewards through the issue of remains of Japanese.
