Abe Hits Out at China, Russia After Trump Call on North Korea

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. President Donald Trump agreed that more action was needed on North Korea in a call days after the isolated regime test-fired its second intercontinental ballistic missile in a month.

"We have made consistent efforts to resolve the North Korean problem in a peaceful manner, but North Korea has ignored that entirely and escalated the situation in a one-sided way," Abe told reporters in Tokyo on Monday after talking to Trump by phone. "The international community, starting with China and Russia, must take this obvious fact seriously and increase pressure."

Abe and Trump "fully agreed" that more action was needed, he added.

The latest missile, which landed in Japan’s exclusive economic zone, reached an altitude of about 3,700 kilometers (2,300 miles), according to South Korea’s military, almost 1,000 kilometers higher than the previous test. That indicates progress toward North Korea’s goal of developing a missile capable of hitting U.S. cities.
