BEIJING (Kyodo) Japan on Tuesday urged North Korea to return immediately to the six-party negotiations on its nuclear threat, but Pyongyang didn’t make any promises, the Japanese ambassador in charge of the issue said after bilateral talks in Beijing.

“We strongly (told North Korea) that it is important to return to the six-party talks in a swift manner,” Tadamichi Yamamoto told reporters after a morning meeting. “The other side acknowledged the importance of the six-party talks, but did not say it will return immediately.”
