Japan’s foreign minister has said that Tokyo will not participate in negotiations with North Korea if the country does not honour previous agreements.

Foreign Minister Seiji Maehara said in a television interview late on Monday that such talks were “impossible” after North Korea hit a South Korean island with an artillery barrage.

China last week called for an emergency session of chief negotiators to the six-nation talks, which are aimed at convincing North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons programme.
