Heads of US and Japanese Defense Ministries Discussed Increased Pressure on Pyongyang

27
Pentagon chief James Mattis and Japanese Defense Minister Itunori Onodera discussed by telephone increasing pressure on the DPRK to change the course conducted by Pyongyang, reports RIA News.




Mattis and Onodera condemned North Korea’s irresponsible and illegal behavior. They discussed the importance of increasing pressure on the DPRK to change its course, refrain from provocative and threatening actions and also make a strategic decision to abandon the nuclear and missile program,
Pentagon spokesman Dana White said in a statement.

The ministers also stressed the “importance of international support and cooperation with multinational partners for a campaign to exert pressure” on North Korea.

It should be noted that the statement by the US and Japanese defense ministers was voiced against the background of the ongoing negotiations between the delegations of the DPRK and South Korea on ways to improve relations and the possible participation of North Korean athletes in the Olympics in Pyeongchang.

    Yes, it’s for them ... We would have to react to pressure from outside, as the DPRK has been doing for a long time ... A small country, damn it, and we ...

    Late, gentlemen, your train is gone! Tolstyachek has already announced to the whole world about the victory of the DPRK over the imperialist and dog Trump. They don’t wave their fists after the fight!

    condemned the irresponsible and illegal behavior of North Korea.
    When some (Koreans) at least somehow try to extinguish the fire, others diligently throw a “Pennsylvania coal” into the light. And the Japanese, as political "ladies of easy virtue" (the literary word does not go through the moderator ???), willingly serve the interests of the United States, supposedly taking care of their safety.

      Duc, bench press for these "others", however. yes If both Koreas individually are able to put the world on their ears, then, united, they definitely will not agree with the role of the "seedy kingdom". It is interesting, nevertheless, to look at the symbiosis of Juche and capitalism, because there is no limit to perfection.

      Suppose, Unu put them on them - he knows who is the boss in the DPRK. And the fact that mattresses did not need to reduce tension on the Korean Peninsula has been repeatedly said.

        Hello! Of course, negotiations between the two Koreas for the mattress are definitely not needed. With a successful outcome of the negotiations, the stripes will have no reason to zealously help the southerners, as well as the Japanese. They also need to impose their missile defense on China and Russia.

          What Trump will immediately appropriate as a diplomatic victory over Eun. And in case of failure (which the mattresses will achieve, I have no doubt about this) will continue to fill their Wishlist in all holes.

            They have such complexity and it will disappear only when they are completely destroyed (but this, maybe, only my Wishlist), as the main degenerates of our world.

              I’ll tell you a secret - I hold the same opinion. wink And there are so many people like us all over the world, especially among those to whom mattresses of their crap were voluntarily-forced under the wings of bombers.

    "Hold me, hold the straw" --- The Japanese, and it’s they on you, atomic bombs dropped. When the opportunity arises, they will throw you, like dogs being abandoned. Let the negotiations go calmly and peacefully. You see how this hydra wriggled over, seeing that the WORLD was getting better.

            A week (approximately) ago, Japan specifically supported South Korea for dialogue with the DPRK, obviously not because of the Olympics. EUN, at home, raised everyone to the ears - it is necessary to establish friendly relations with the southerners, down to one state (of course I can’t imagine this). And it all comes to the states. They immediately enter into dialogue with Japan and begin to dictate under what conditions there can be peace with the DPRK. It is clear that the conditions are not acceptable for UNA. That's what this is doing, why be surprised. But is it really bad if the north - south had at least some sort of normal relationship. Clearly, everything is permeated with state metastases there.

                They got everyone, but everyone is afraid of them, except for Russia and China. But fermentation, clearly visible in every state, begins. At the moment, here - on the topic and Germany - Merkel (which is, it is needed).

    Do not “crush” the thermonuclear charge that the DPRK has during its “pressure increase on the DPRK”.
