Abe Confirm Cooperation with 2 More Baltic Leaders over N. Korea

   Vilnius, Lithuania, Jan. 13 (Jiji Press)--Visiting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Saturday confirmed cooperation with leaders of two more Baltic states in dealing with North Korea.
   North Korea has fired missiles that put the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius within range, posing a threat to Europe at large, Abe told Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis.
   Skvernelis replied that North Korea should refrain from taking actions that may heighten tensions.
   Earlier in the day, Abe met with Latvian Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis in the country's capital of Riga.
   They agreed on the need to maximize pressure on North Korea and the importance of resolving the issue of abduction of citizens kidnapped to the reclusive country. Latvia has imposed tougher sanctions on North Korea than those by the European Union.
