Abe asks North Korea to take 'concrete steps'

Japan's prime minister warned Thursday that North Korea's offer of denuclearisation talks with the US could be a ploy to play for time and stressed the need for Pyongyang to take"concrete"steps. Shinzo Abe said that talking for the sake of talking was"meaningless.""I've repeatedly said that we have to create a situation of putting maximum pressure on N Korea so that the it wants to have talks with us."However it is true that the North has in the past earned time to develop nuclear capabilities and missiles"during periods of negotiation, Abe cautioned.
