Japan opposes resuming international talks on dismantling North Korea's nuclear program unless Pyongyang is ready to compromise, a top Japanese ruling party official warned Sunday. The comments by Shoichi Nakagawa, chairman of the Liberal Democratic Party's policy research council, came as North Korea's neighbors scramble to arrange a new round of negotiations, perhaps as early as next week. "It's fine if North Korea can bring some contribution to peace, but simply starting talks is not meaningful," Nakagawa said on a morning talk show carried by public broadcaster NHK.
