Well despite the chaos, it seems the talks were productive. Good to hear about the infrastructure deals and visa free travel

I guess the guy figured, if you can't say something nice, then just resign.

Why is this guy Abe going round minor European countries banging on about NK all the time? Has he been given orders by Washington to help "sell the upcoming war"?

It's consensus building. As in, "Agree with us and we'll give you money for stuff".

Abe has always 2 jumbo jets. 30 different japanese companies will be paid to go along.

Why to approach EU through the back door?

Abe later met Romania's president, where they talked about the danger posed by North Korea's nuclear arms.

Romania does not give a toss about NK.

Abe also spoke about a subway line planned from Bucharest's Henri Coanda Airport to the capital of Bucharest, which Japan will provide one-third of the financing.

Romania does give a toss about free money though.

J diplomacy in a nutshell , we will give you lots of our taxpayer dough if you agree with us about stuff you could not care less about normally .

Maybe because most of those he's visiting host North Korean embassies? I'm not sure if the significance of that but I saw it mentioned by the Japanese press.

E.g. Democratic People Republic of Korea Embassy in Romania
