N. Korea unhappy about Japan not giving them aid

North Korea expressed displeasure over Japan's refusal to participate in aid to Pyongyang for taking denuclearization steps, a news report cited a North Korean official as saying. "The role that each country is supposed to play is clearly written in the joint agreement," Kyodo News agency quoted Ri Pyong Dok, a researcher in charge of Japan at the North Korean Foreign Ministry, as saying. Ri also said that while Pyongyang is still considering the details of a Japan-North Korea working group to be established under Tuesday's agreement, it is flexible about when and where the group will hold its first meeting, Kyodo reported.
