"There is no equivalency between what the DPRK has been engaged in - the ICBM missile tests in July, the two of those, the nuclear testing", Neuert insisted.

The United States and South Korea insist their annual joint exercises are purely defensive, and can not be linked to the North's missile program, which violates a host of U.N. resolutions.

Abe spoke to reporters Tuesday after a phone conversation with the American president.

North Korea has said the flight path for such a launch would go over western Japan.
