Japan, S. Korea to closely coordinate over N. Korea

Japan, S. Korea to closely coordinate over N. Korea

"North Korea's most recent missile launch is absolutely intolerable", he said through an interpreter.

The South Korean military reported that the missile launch was a "show of force" in response to Trump's hard-line stance on North Korea's weapons programs.

President Donald Trump, in his just-concluded two-day meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, undercut the most significant negative narrative about his foreign policy.

Kim Jong Un's regime has accelerated North Korea's efforts to develop nuclear weapons and missiles that can strike the United States and its allies in Asia.

"Perhaps (North Korea) wanted to draw the attention of the worldwide community" and avoid being left out of Trump's foreign policy agenda", another senior SDF official said.

USA forces in Japan, the Senkaku Islands, North Korea and situations in the East and South China seas are Tokyo's four most pressing concerns.

The firing is the first since Trump became President but previous year the communist state conducted more than 20 missile tests and two nuclear tests. This is one of our earliest visits with a foreign leader.

"It is important that both Japan and the United States continue to invest very heavily in the alliance to build up our defense", President Trump said.

Before the joint conference ended, Trump also mentioned that his government is working on a better healthcare system to replace the Affordable Care Act.

Trump had promised American voters that his administration would force Tokyo to pay more for United States defense aid. However, he said the U.S. would avoid escalation.

Mr. Abe, speaking in Japanese, congratulated Mr. Trump on being elected as the US President.

They departed later for Palm Beach, Florida, for a weekend stay at Trump's Mar-a-Lago retreat with their wives.

Abe pledged Japan would help create USA jobs, hoping to persuade Trump to turn down the heat on economic matters and stand by the alliance.

It occurred near the northwestern city of Kusong and the missile was tracked over North Korea and into the Sea of Japan.

Abe in turn praised Trump's "uphill struggle" to become president and noted that his own "scores in golf are not up to the level of Donald at all".

He also said that he had agreed with Trump to enforce US-Japanese alliance. Abe presented Trump with a $3,800 gold-inlayed driver.
