ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Japanese government is frustrated that talks with North Korea did not produce results on the issue of abductions of Japanese nationals and other matters. Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi termed the lack of results discouraging, but called for patience. The talks employed a new three-track format, with separate panels discussing the abductions of Japanese nationals, normalization of diplomatic relations, and Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs.
