US President Donald Trump said Friday the "problem" of an increasingly belligerent North Korea would be "solved", as he met his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe just before the start of the G7 summit. "We overwhelmingly support the United States' stance that all options (related to Pyongyang) are on the table", he said. It's a world problem.
Trump's tough talk came in a meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan, which along with South Korea is most immediately threatened by North Korean belligerence.
Earlier in the day, the G7 leaders adopted the communique, which says that North Korea is a top priority in the global agenda since Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs pose new levels of threat.
That's according to a White House readout of the pair's meeting Friday ahead of the G-7 summit of wealthy nations.
North Korea carried out two atomic tests past year, and has accelerated its missile launch programme, despite tough United Nations sanctions aimed at denying Kim the hard currency needed to fund his weapons ambitions. "In my discussions with senior officials in both South Korea and the USA, the view was that should North Korea ever be recognised as a nuclear weapons state, then Japan and (South) Korea would have little option than to develop their own nuclear weapons capability", she said.
Abe meant to use the summit to underscore the danger posed by the unpredictable regime in North Korea following its recent series of missile tests.

But Beijing, the North's main trade partner, has made clear that the push for diplomatic talks - not imposing more sanctions - is the priority.
"During the summit I emphasized that cooperation with Russian Federation and China is needed to solve the North Korea crisis".
Nonetheless, North Korea on May 21 launched a ballistic missile for the second week in a row.
