Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he and U.S. President Donald Trump affirmed Thursday in New York they will work together to call on the international community to strengthen pressure on North Korea, including through the stringent enforcement of U.N. sanctions.

In light of the threat from North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile development, a key theme at this year’s U.N. General Assembly, Abe told reporters he and Trump also confirmed in their meeting “the unwavering U.S. commitment to the defense of Japan and the fact that Japan and the United States are with each other 100 percent.”
