TOKYO — Ja­panese Prime Min­is­ter Shinzo Abe met with South Korea's in­tel­li­gence chief on Tues­day, and said that while he wel­comes any di­a­logue with North Korea re­gard­ing the coun­try's de­nu­cle­ariza­tion, the North must take real steps to­ward that goal.

“I be­lieve it is ex­tremely im­por­tant that North Korea takes con­crete ac­tions to achieve what it has said,” Abe said at the be­gin­ning of talks with South Korean in­tel­li­gence chief Suh Hoon.

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has agreed to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by May. came a week af­ter for­mer spy Sergei Skri­pal was left crit­i­cally ill from nerve agent poi­son­ing.

Po­lice said there was no ev­i­dence to sug­gest a link to the March 4 poi­son­ing of Skri­pal and his daugh­ter Yu­lia.
