Japan's PM Shinzo Abe agrees to keep close contact with US on North Korea


Abe told reporters after a telephone call with Trump that he appreciated the US leader's stance of showing that all options are on the table when it comes to dealing with North Korea.

Tensions have risen sharply over North Korea's advancing nuclear and missile programmes. The United States has ordered the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group to sail to waters off the Korean peninsula, prompting Pyongyang to say it was ready to sink the carrier.
