Davies is in Tokyo to meet with his Japanese counterpart after visiting Seoul and Beijing as North Korea threatens daily that it is preparing its third nuclear test in response to UN sanctions imposed on Pyongyang for a long-range rocket launch in December. In 2002 North Korea admitted to kidnapping 13 Japanese in the 1970s and 1980s to teach its spies about the Japanese language and culture and Tokyo still insists that clearing up the abduction issue is paramount to any negotiations between the two countries.
