TOKYO - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he agreed with US President Donald Trump during a telephone call on Tuesday that their top priority regarding North Korea was to do what they could to halt missile launches by the regime.

Abe said he also praised a commitment by Trump that the United States would ensure the security of the United State's allies in the region as threats from North Korea intensify.

Under an alliance treaty with the United States, Washington has pledged to defend Japan. Japan will ask the US to reaffirm that commitment in high-level talks in Washington this week.
