'No discussion on human rights at Kim-Moon summit'

Japanese foreign minister Taro Kono made a rare visit to Seoul armed with a list of issues Tokyo wants to push onto the agenda of the April 27 summit between North and South Korea.

"Bolton does not even mention the possibility of a peace treaty with Pyongyang" which is sought by the South, said Koo Kab-woo, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul.

The conservative leader also said the "fake inter-Korean peace show" marks the eighth time that the North has lied and that the incumbent administration is using the opportunity to increase support for the ruling party ahead of the June 13 local elections.

He also repeated Japan's call for South Korea to stick to a December 2015 bilateral agreement on the issue of "comfort women" forced into Japanese wartime military brothels.

South Korea's national security adviser has flown to Washington to meet his newly appointed U.S. counterpart John Bolton, an official said on Thursday in Seoul, where concerns are growing over the American's hardline stance on the nuclear-armed North. Chung Eui-yong, who personally delivered Kim's summit offer to Trump last month, returned to the United States capital unannounced on Wednesday as the two allies plan their upcoming summits with North Korea's Kim Jong-un.

The US-North Korea summit will be the first of its kind.

But the top diplomats remained divided on two thorny historical issues still unresolved.

However, according to a South Korean Foreign Ministry source, Kang did not take a stance of going along with Japan's call for maximum pressure. "Kono expressed Japan's stance on "comfort women" and Dokdo, and Kang explained our stance over "comfort women" and made clear that the South can not accept any argument by Japan over Dokdo", the ministry said in a statement.

Kang said the abductions are a humanitarian issue along with that of families separated by the Korean War.

The official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said in an article that there is increasing voice for re-investigation into the case of Cheonan in South Korea, as some 70 percent of South Koreans don't believe the result of investigation.

During his hour-long meeting with Kang, Kono said, "No reward should be given to North Korea just because it agreed to dialogue".
