US, Japan affirm commitment to combat North Korea threat; heres whats happened

Amid ICBM test by North Korea, the US President Donald Trump today spoke over phone with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and reaffirmed the commitment to combat the North Korean threat.

It may be known that the ballistic missile test by North Korea landed Japan’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

Barely a week after the US slapped fresh sanctions on North Korea and declared it a state sponsor of terrorism, Pyongyang launched an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) which travelled about 1000 km before splashing down in the Sea of Japan.

Trump and Abe reaffirmed their commitment to combat the North Korean threat, the White House said.

Meanwhile, top American lawmakers condemned the North Korean missile test.
