Nov 14 2017 by Desiree Burns
PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has expressed his support for Japan's position against North Korea and cautioned President Kim Jong-un not to threaten the world with his missiles.Duterte made the assurance when he met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe during a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) Summit in Pasay City on Monday night.
Speaking at the ASEAN-Japan Summit, Abe reiterated his call for the global community to increase pressure on the hermit state- a move Japan hopes will make it seek dialogue and lay down arms.
On history, Taiwan and other major issues of principle concerning the political foundation of the China-Japan relations, the Japanese side should always act in light of the four political documents and the consensus reached by the two sides, Xi said.
Duterte assured Abe that the Philippines will back Japan's stance against North Korea as it is a matter of interest of the two countries, despite the Philippines being much farther from the rogue state compared to Japan. "We must increase the pressure on North Korea to the maximum extent using all possible means", he said.
According to the spokesman, Abe and Li agreed to make arrangements to hold a trilateral summit with South Korean President Moon Jae In "soon", without mentioning a specific timeline.
