Joint Press Conference with President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America on the Missile Launch by North Korea
Saturday, February 11, 2017
Prime Minister Abe:
North Korea’s most recent missile launch is absolutely intolerable. North Korea must fully comply with the relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions.
During the summit meeting that I had with President Trump, he assured me that the United States will always be with Japan 100%. And to demonstrate his determination as well as commitment, he is now here with me at this joint press conference.
President Trump and I, myself, completely share the view that we are going to promote further collaboration between the two nations and also we are going to further reinforce our alliance. That is all from me.
Thank you very much, Mr. Prime Minister.
I just want everybody to understand and fully know that the United States of America stands behind Japan, its great ally, 100%. Thank you.
