TOKYO - Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono said on Monday he and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson agreed to cooperate closely in order to exert pressure on North Korea through the United Nations.

"We agreed on close cooperation between Japan and the United States to exert maximum pressure on North Korea and the UN, including the adoption of Security Council resolutions," Kono told reporters after a phone call with Tillerson.

Kono and Tillerson spoke after reclusive North Korea conducted its sixth nuclear test on Sunday.
