Tokyo: Japan supports US President Donald Trump’s policy that all options are on the table in dealing with North Korea, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Monday in a joint press conference.

“We always support President Trump’s policy that all options are on the table,” in reining in North Korea over its provocative actions involving its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, Abe said.

 

Japan will freeze the assets of North Korean groups and individuals as a new sanction, said Abe.

“We will decide tomorrow to freeze the assets of 35 organisations and individuals” as an additional sanction to resolve the issues of abductions and Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile development, he said.

Trump, meanwhile, said the time for patience with North Korea was over. “The era of strategic patience is over,” Trump declared alongside his host, Abe.
