World leaders share 'unprecedented sense of crisis' over North Korea, Abe says

World leaders share 'unprecedented sense of crisis' over North Korea, Abe says

After the meeting, the Japanese and Australian prime ministers had their bilateral talks for 30 minutes, agreeing to work closely to deal with issues including China's expansion in the South and East China Seas.

"I believe that it continues to develop its weapons", Abe told a news conference in Manila after a series of meetings with other Asian leaders at a gathering of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) and East Asia Forum.

World leaders who attended a regional summit here shared an "unprecedented sense of crisis" over North Korea's continuous development of nuclear weapons, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Tuesday. "It is bad. It puts a strain on everybody, not only in Japan but all over the world", Duterte said.

"He should realize that he'd be responsible for ending life on this planet if his mind goes out of control".

The North, led by Kim Jong Un, last fired off a missile that sailed over Japan in September but has since stopped such tests after a record-breaking pace.

Police have named the man accused of stabbing two people inside the Mall of America during a botched theft attempt Sunday. The others in their party disarmed Abdirahaman and restrained him until police arrived a few minutes later.

Duterte also said the Asean was doing its part to try to persuade Kim to stop his nuclear amibitions.

"That is why we are persuading him, maybe pleading him to stop the aggressive posture. The Philippines is too far but, you know, nobody will save us from a holocaust if it happens", he said.

Trump ratcheted up pressure on North Korea even before he met Abe, saying before a crowd of U.S. and Japanese troops at the U.S. Yokota Air Base shortly after he arrived Sunday that "no one - no dictator, no regime and no nation - should underestimate, ever, American resolve". Over the past two decades, our cooperation continued to flourish steadily among the Asean external partners' cooperation. We need to carry forward this fine tradition. Mr Abe said, "Golf clubs are where we can both relax and share our real feelings, and we took our time having a frank talk about all sorts of hard topics".

Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said APT alliance has broadened to include food security, energy, environment, and health.

Abe, in a meeting Chinese President Xi Jinping at an Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam on Saturday, hailed a "fresh start" to the relationship between Asia's two biggest economies and military powers, including cooperation on North Korea. Tokyo will also give aid to the Marawi evacuees.
