Shinzo Abe, Donald Trump discuss North Korea issue

Increasing friendly relations between US and Japan

Though US ambassador to United Nation said that the US was done talking about North Korea, still Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe spoke to US President, Donald Trump and decided that there is a need to take further actions on North Korea.

Adding that Japan and South Korea needs to do more, US ambassador to United Nation said that any new UN Security Council resolution that does not significantly increase the international pressure on North Korea is of no value.

Abe said that even though repeated efforts are being made by the international community to find a peaceful solution to the North Korean issue had yet to bear fruit in the face of Pyongyang’s unilateral “escalation” of the situation. Russia and China need to take this seriously and increase pressure. He also said that Japan would pursue concrete steps to bolster defence system and capabilities under the firm solidarity with the U.S. and do utmost to protect the safety of the Japanese people.

North Korea had conducted another successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile on 29 July that proved its ability to strike the US mainland, drawing a sharp warning from Trump and a rebuke from China. A broader part of the mainland United States, including Los Angeles and Chicago, is now in the range of Pyongyang’s weapons.

Trump has even tweeted that he is very disappointed with China that it has done nothing for the US in regards to North Korea and this is something that he will not tolerate.

The United States has flown two supersonic bombers over the Korean Peninsula in a show of force against North Korea following its latest intercontinental ballistic missile test. The U.S. also said it conducted a successful test of a missile defense system located in Alaska.
