Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (shin-zoh AH'-bay) has announced plans to take additional sanctions measures against North Korea over its escalating missile and nuclear development.
Abe said Monday he will announce Tuesday a freezing of the assets of 35 North Korean groups and individuals as Japan's own sanctions measure.
He made the announcement during a joint news conference after holding talks with President Donald Trump, who is on a three-day visit in Tokyo as part of his Asia tour.
Abe says North Korea dominated their talks, and that they are completely on the same page on the issue. Abe reiterated that it's not time for dialogue but to maximize pressure on North Korea.
