Trump, Abe to Increase Pressure on Pyongyang after Missile Test
Local Editor

Japanese PM Shinzo Abe held a phone conversation with US president Donald Trump, in which the two leaders agreed to ramp up pressure on North Korea after its latest test of a suspected intermediate range ballistic missile which flew over Japan.

Following the conversation, Abe told reporters that Trump restated Washington's full commitment to their ally's security and assured him that the United States was "100 percent with Japan."

After Tuesday's launch and flyby over Japanese territory, the country's prime minister vowed to do everything in his power to protect his nation.

"We will make utmost efforts to firmly protect the lives of the people," Shinzo Abe said Tuesday before convening an emergency session on the missile firing, Reuters reported.

The Japanese PM called the missile launch "an unprecedented, serious and significant threat" which seriously diminishes peace in the region.

Abe also said that Japan had "requested an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council."

The UNSC is reportedly scheduled to meet Tuesday. The time of the meeting has not yet been confirmed.

"South Korea, the US and Japan jointly requested the UNSC hold an emergency meeting to address an emergence of threats to the peace and security," an official at S. Korea's foreign ministry told Yonhap.
