US President Donald Trump said on Monday that the US and Japan would work together as «friends and allies» to counter the regime in North Korea, which he described as «a threat to international peace and stability.» Trump was addressing a news conference in Tokyo alongside Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Trump revealed he had met the parents of Japanese girl Megumi Yokota who was abducted... Еще by North Korea in 1977. «No parent should have to endure 40 years of heartbreak,» he said, before referring to the death this year of US student Otto Warmbier, who was detained in Pyongyang and returned home with brain damage, only to die days later. Abe, who has taken a more hawkish view on North Korea than some of his predecessors, agreed with Trump's assessment that «all options on the table» when dealing with Kim Jong Un and announced new sanctions against several dozen North Korean individuals. «No one wants a conflict, neither myself nor President Trump. But North Korea continues challenging the international order and repeating provocations,» he said. Trump is currently in Japan, his first stop on his 12 day tour of Asia.
