SUBJECT: TOKYO MEDIA REACTION - NORTH KOREA

1. LEAD STORIES: There were no papers published on
Monday morning due to a press holiday. NHK reported
this morning that Prime Minister Hatoyama plans to meet
with cabinet members today to conduct coordination on
the Futenma relocation issue.

2. "Easy Compromise Should Be Avoided" The moderate
Yomiuri editorialized (12/12): "U.S. Special
Representative for North Korea Policy Bosworth, who
recently visited Pyongyang, failed to win a commitment
from North Korea either to 'return' to the Six-Party
Talks or to 'reconfirm' its promise to abandon its
nuclear programs. However, he is said to have reached a
certain degree of common understanding. This could be
interpreted to mean there is a possibility that the
U.S. and North Korea will hold additional talks until
the Six-Party Talks are resumed. The Obama
administration should be careful in pursuing an early
resumption of the talks.... North Korea conducted its
second nuclear test in May and has not shown any sign
of curbing its nuclear development. This is an act on
the part of North Korea to make a mockery of the UN
Security Council resolution that was adopted following
the nuclear test. The international community should
not relax its sanctions until Pyongyang takes specific
measures to abandon its nuclear programs."
