Abe, Moon agree to put a “maximum” pressure on North Korea

All broadcasters reported that Prime Minister Abe spoke by phone with South Korean President Moon for 20 minutes on Wednesday morning and that the two leaders agreed on the need for continued close coordination with the U.S. in seeking another UNSC resolution on stricter sanctions on North Korea. The networks said that Abe and Moon also agreed to step up pressure on North Korea to the “maximum level” to urge Pyongyang to come to the negotiating table and to call on China and Russia to play a role in stepping up sanctions.
