The foreign ministers of Japan, the United States and South Korea will seek to beef up coordination on Sunday amid uncertainty about North Korea's denuclearization path.

The second trilateral meeting in less than a month follows U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang where he tried to work out the specifics of denuclearization with senior North Korean officials.

Opposing views on the outcome of the latest meeting pointed to discord as North Korea accused the United States of making unilateral and "gangster-like" demands.
