US, Japanese leaders agree to enhance sanctions against North Korea: White House

US PRESIDENT Donald Trump has vowed that he will sort out the "big problem" of tensions with North Korea over its nuclear problem in a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

President Trump said: "It is a close partnership and collaboration and friendship".

"It's a world problem and it will be solved at some point".

Donald Trump has approved a four-point policy plan on North Korea revolving around "every possible pressure" but a diplomatic solution, according to South Korean lawmakers Thursday. "You can bet on that", Trump said in reference to Pyongyang, Efe news reported.

The leaders called for the complete abandonment of North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs - a stronger position than last year's G-7 statement, which simply urged the North to refrain from "further tests".

Abe said he meant to use the G7 summit to underscore the danger posed by the unpredictable regime in North Korea.

The US is anxious that if North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is not stopped, other countries in the region including Japan and South Korea would be compelled to seek their own nuclear capability as a defence measure. Tokyo and Washington believe that behind the North's continued acts of provocations lies the failure in the global community to take concerted measures against the North, with China, a close ally of North Korea, maintaining its stance of attaching weight to dialogue with the country.

The North brought in 4,100 tons of grain from China in April, 5.4 times higher than 754 tons a year earlier, said Voice of America, citing Kwon Tae-jin, head of South Korean agricultural think tank GS&J Institute's North Korea and East Asia division.

North Korea's grain imports from China showed a more than fivefold surge last month from a year ago, a US broadcaster said Friday. Abe insisted that a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for "tough measures" against Pyongyang would be necessary if the country continued with its provocative acts such as launching intercontinental ballistic missiles, and other leaders expressed support for the proposal.
