Don't worry, regardless North Korea will still blame Japan for this.

How and why the boat capsized was unknown.

I'm sure North Korea will blame Japan for their water being too aggressive.

In response to the Article title; Why?

Maybe Japan should charge NK for the search.

Did they release the fish from the capsized boat? If stocks are low, fish need to be allowed to spawn and create thousands of offspring. Perhaps some of them will swim to NK?

RIP to the victims. Doesn't matter what their nationality happens to be.

Again??? I hate to say this, and I’m no fan of trump, but the only way he will get re-elected is if he does what every previous administration has failed to do for 60 years... cut off the head of the snake, which is North Korea. Just America will never do that because they are Chinese (and Russian) puppets.

Moon and Trump are delirious if they think engagement would actually work (which it hasn’t). Moon is basically a fascist and Trump is a gangster who was made an offer he couldn’t refuse by foreign entities.

Do you even think before you write things? How is Japan responsible for the ship capsizing. Sure they have a duty to respond to the distress call, but even that is a legal framework requiring them to

How and why the boat capsized was unknown. It was not immediately clear if the boat was inside Japan's 200-mile (322-kilometer) exclusive economic zone, where the country has the right to all resources.

See how the language has changed ? The NK boat cause of sinking NOT rammed but unknown.. Location of the incident ? Was not immediately clear.

I'm still glad that Japan is behaving with civil decorum by joining the search and rescue efforts.

What are you talking about? You realize that this is a different boat than the boat that you and North Korea insist was rammed, right?

The Japan Coast Guard wasn't in the area of where this boat went down so no one knows anything. No 'language has changed', they are just stating the facts as they stand. Sheesh.
