Britain Backs Japan Against North Korea Nuclear Weapons Program

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said, “the country backs Japan in efforts to check North Korea’s nuclear and missile development and called on China to help North Korea back to agreements with world powers”.

Fumio Kishida, a Japanese counter part of British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said, “Secretary Johnson and I agreed that Japan and Britain will demonstrate leadership to maintain a free and open international community.”

Boris Johnson arrived in Tokyo on Thursday for talks with Japan on Britain for some issues like security and trade.

The Japan’s Foreign Ministry said Brexit and North Korean Nuclear and missile program were on top agenda for the meeting among Boris Johnson and his Japanese counterpart Fumio Kishida.

Taking a major step in its missile program, North Korea this month said it test launched an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that some experts believe the range to reach the U.S. states of Alaska and Hawaii.

Japan’s relations with China have been affected due to extending claims over a group of small East China Sea islets; and in the South China Sea, China’s installation of artificial islands and military deployments have frightened its neighbors.
