Abe, Trump to Confirm Cooperation over North Korea

Abe, Trump to Confirm Cooperation over North Korea

   Tokyo, Aug. 19 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. President Donald Trump are likely to confirm their countries' cooperation on dealing with North Korea when they meet on the sidelines of a Group of Seven summit in Biarritz, France, which starts on Saturday.
   The two leaders are also expected to discuss a U.S.-proposed coalition to ensure safe navigation in the Strait of Hormuz and bilateral trade talks.
   At their previous meeting in Osaka, Japan, on June 28, Abe and Trump confirmed their countries' close cooperation to resolve North Korea's nuclear, missile and abduction issues.
   North Korea has conducted six rounds of launches of projectiles, including short-range ballistic missiles, since late July, amid Trump's tolerance of such firings.
   During his coming meeting with Trump, Abe is likely to express Tokyo's readiness to further strengthen its alliance with Washington to improve deterrence against Pyongyang.
