"As far as a series of reports are concerned, (Abe) has said he will definitely talk about nuclear, missile and abduction issues. I think it is conditional," Song was further quoted as saying.

I agree 100%.

Ganbare

the chance to appear on the world stage again. Thats why.

Are you saying Kim's three meetings with Trump weren't appearance on the World stage.?

You never fail to amaze.

Why would Kim want to talk with Abe anyway?

That's easy. The real question is why would Abe want to talk with Kim? If Kim wants to talk, he'll talk. There is really nothing that current-day North Korea can offer Japan, except a pathetic promise not to launch missiles.

It's a waste of time to talk with Kim, especially if he shows no interest.

If you are being Comarade "K.J." and you know Uncle Trump will flight directly to Pyongyang like Nixon had been to Beijiang, will you desperately wants to talk to Abe?

N Korea just needs validation. They don't care about making nice with its neighbors.

Not surprising. Kim met with Putin and Xi Jin Ping, and he can basically meet with Trump anytime he wants, so why would he waste time with a small fish like Abe ?

I would not call the man about to become the longest serving ruler of Japan in Nivember - of a netion with world 3rd biggest economy - a "small fish".

Why would Kim do anything to talk to Abe while Moon is busily waging war on Abe, thereby destroying the US-JPN-SK military alliance which threatens North Korea?

Why would Kim want to talk with Abe anyway?

Aid money, future big joint development projects, desperately needed medicine and food, the chance to appear on the world stage again. Thats why.
