Trump meets Japan, Australia leaders over trade, N. Korea threat

Trump meets Japan, Australia leaders over trade, N. Korea threat

The rogue state previously threatened to launch ballistic missiles toward Guam, where a U.S. military base is located, prompting American President Donald Trump to declare that he would meet any threat to his country with "fire and fury."Japan and South Korea, East Asian countries that also host USA military installations, are also bracing for possible missile attacks".

President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday condemned North Korea's nuclear ambition and backed Japan's moves to counter threats posed by the rogue state amid heightened tensions.

Following the meeting, the White House said "the three leaders reaffirmed their commitment to maintaining maximum pressure on North Korea in the effort to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula".

Abe appealed to Li for China - North Korea's primary diplomatic and economic backer - to play a "more constructive" role, the spokesman said.

According to Japanese officials, Abe will seek to strengthen cooperation between Japan and ASEAN to lead the pursuit of a "free and open" order.

FARA was first passed in 1938 in the lead up to World War Two in an effort to combat German propaganda efforts. RT said it complied with a US demand to make the filing by November 13 or face prosecution.

The North Korea issue was also mentioned during bilateral talks between President Rodrigo Dutete and Abe.

The summit, which Tokyo has said it wants to hold by the end of the year, would bring Li to Japan for the first time since he became premier.

Countries remaining in the pact have said the deal is advancing without the United States.

In a summit with Xi on Saturday night, Abe received no clear response to a proposal that he visit China next year to mark the 40th anniversary of a friendship treaty. "To improve China-Japan ties, the key is mutual trust". He also proposed that Japan and China cooperate in doing business in third countries.

"It is not to the interest of North Korea to swagger around and threaten the world, keeping us hostage with the atomic weapons", said Duterte on Monday, November 13, during the meeting held on the sidelines of the 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit and Related Summits.
