TOKYO: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Thursday North Korea was engaging in continued provocations that were “absolutely unacceptable” and said he would work with the international community to counter its nuclear and missiles development.
“It is not an exaggeration to say that the security environment surrounding Japan is at its severest since World War Two,” Abe told a New Year news conference.
“By raising pressure on North Korea together with the international community, I intend to do my utmost to solve North Korea’s nuclear, missiles and abduction issues.”
