TOKYO - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Thursday he fully backed US President Donald Trump's decision to end his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un without an agreement.

"I fully support President Trump's decision not to make the easy choice," Abe said following a telephone call with Trump."I am determined that I must meet Chairman Kim next," he added, reiterating his desire to have a summit with the North Korean leader.

Abe said Trump, at his meeting with Kim in Vietnam, had raised the issue of Japanese citizens abducted by North Koreans agents.

Abe has said Japan would not normalize diplomatic ties with Pyongyang or provide economic assistance until North Korea gave a full accounting of all those taken and return any abductees who are still alive.
