 来週以降にも行われる見通しの拉致問題などを巡る北朝鮮の特別調査委員会の報告を前に、外務省の伊原アジア大洋州局長と北朝鮮の国家安全保衛部の幹部がマレーシアで極秘に協議していたことが明らかになった。

 日朝の関係筋によると、外務省の伊原局長は先月21日から2日間にわたって、マレーシアのクアラルンプールで北朝鮮の国家安全保衛部の幹部と協議したという。今回は北朝鮮外務省ではなく、拉致の実態について情報を持つとされる国家安全保衛部の幹部と直接協議をしていることから、突っ込んだやりとりが行われたとみられている。

 やりとりの詳細は明らかになっていないが、日朝関係筋によると、協議の中で北朝鮮側が拉致被害者に関する具体的な情報を出さなかったため、日本側が詳細な情報を出すよう強く求めたという。来週以降にも行われる見通しの北朝鮮による1回目の調査報告に向けて、今後も水面下の駆け引きが続くものとみられる。

Senior member of N. Korea secret police met Japan diplomat over abduction issue

KYODO

  • SEP 2, 2014

A senior official of North Korea’s secret police organ directly linked to leader Kim Jong Un met Japan’s top diplomat for Asian affairs in a closed-door meeting last month to discuss the abduction issue, diplomatic sources close to Tokyo and Pyongyang said Tuesday.

The North Korean representative and Junichi Ihara, director general of the Foreign Ministry’s Asian and Oceanian Affairs Bureau, apparently held the secret contact around Aug. 21 in Kuala Lumpur, the sources said.

The official belongs to the Ministry of State Security, which is leading North Korea’s reinvestigation into the fates of Japanese nationals abducted by North Korean agents in the 1970s and 1980s following an accord between Tokyo and Pyongyang in May.

North Korea’s special committee on the Japanese abductees, launched on July 4, is expected to issue the first report of its probe into the whereabouts of the Japanese abductees including the 12 Japanese nationals on Tokyo’s official list of 17 abduction victims.

Japan believes it must get a grasp on the progress made so far by the committee but has found limitations to holding dialogue with the North through the Japanese Embassy in Beijing, the sources said.

For a better picture on the progress over the abduction issue, Ihara, who serves as its chief negotiator in direct talks with North Korea, was sent to represent Japan in the secret meeting late last month.

During their secret contact, the North Korean side did not provide any new information about abductees and called for Tokyo to take steps such as lifting the ban preventing the Mangyongbong-92 passenger-cargo ferry from entering Japanese ports in exchange for the report on the abductees, the sources said.

The two countries failed to fix the exact timing of the report’s release, which was initially seen to be in the second week of September, as Ihara could not work out differences with the North Korean representative over the progress made in the new abductee investigation, according to the sources.

Japan plans to urge North Korea to take more steps to shed light into the abduction issue and obtain the report at an early date, but there is a possibility the report may come in the third week of September or later.

Pyongyang’s probe into the abductions was launched following an agreement between Japan and North Korea on May 29 under which Japan pledged to partially lift its unilateral sanctions on the North after Pyongyang agreed to form a special committee on the Japanese abductees.

After the committee was set up, Japan lifted some of its sanctions against North Korea.
