The White House said in a statement on Sunday that the leaders reaffirmed their commitment to a denuclearized Korean Peninsula. In one conversation, President Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe agreed to increase pressure on Pyongyang. The two leaders said the US-Japan alliance is ready to self-defend and respond to any threat or acts from North Korea.
