I wonder how many times I've heard this. From the article above, my understanding is that, it's Japan and Co that regrets the absence of N.Korea as a lost opportunity for holding diplomatic talks. Not the other way round. The guy up north knows his moves.

Suga has called the abduction issue a top priority for his administration, vowing not to "waste any chance" for dialogue with Pyongyang ...

All it takes is for Suga to have a will to pick up the phone if he,s really serious about wanting to have a dialogue.

N Korea's absence at Olympics likely to extend diplomatic deadlock
