FOREIGN POLICY/JAPAN/NORTH KOREA: “North Korea’s test launch of a ballistic missile was ‘absolutely intolerable,’ Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said at a joint news conference with U.S. President Donald Trump in Florida, on Saturday.
‘I just want everybody to understand, and fully know, that the United States of America is behind Japan, our great ally, 100 percent,’ Trump told reporters in Palm Beach, Florida, speaking alongside Abe. He made no further comments.
North Korea fired a ballistic missile into the sea off its east coast early on Sunday, South Korea’s military said, the first time the isolated state has tested such a device since U.S. President Donald Trump’s election.”
