Trump-Kim Summit

Abe seeks September summit with Kim Jong Un

Russia and UN seen as possible venues

TOKYO -- Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is considering meeting with Kim Jong Un this fall, responding to the North Korean leader's openness to dialogue expressed during a summit with President Donald Trump this week.

"We see the U.S.-North Korea summit as an opening," Abe said Thursday in a meeting with family members of Japanese nationals abducted by the rogue state decades ago. "Japan should squarely face North Korea to resolve the issue," he added. Trump has said he raised the issue with Kim.
