BEIJING, April 5 (Yonhap) -- A senior North Korean diplomat in charge of talks to normalize relations with Japan did not arrive in Beijing on Saturday, despite a Japanese media report that Pyongyang and Tokyo would hold informal high-level talks here over the weekend.

North Korean delegation, including Ambassador Song Il-ho, the North's chief negotiator in the normalization talks with Japan, did not show at the Beijing Capital International Airport on Saturday, and no flight between Pyongyang and Beijing was scheduled for Sunday.
