May, Abe pledge to increase pressure on North Korea

According to the NHK broadcaster, Abe, during his 20-minute call with Moon, said that the missile launch had been an unprecedented and serious threat, adding that it clearly showed that "North Korea was not ready for the dialogue".

The UK can not negotiate bilateral trade deals until it leaves the European Union in 2019. "We see that the best way of doing that is for China to be bringing pressure to bear on North Korea", May told reporters on her way to Japan for meetings with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

The UN Security Council on Tuesday unanimously condemned North Korea over the launch of the missile, which flew over Japanese territory before crashing into the Pacific, but it stopped short of issuing fresh punitive measures against the regime.

British Prime Minister Theresa May, in her first official visit to Japan, signed a joint statement with Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe stressing the need to expand military cooperation in the face of the growing threat posed by Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programme, Efe news reported.

May, who is now conducting a state visit to Japan, released a joint statement with Abe in response to the August 29 launch of a Hwasong-12 intermediate range ballistic missile, which flew over Japanese territory and landed in the Pacific Ocean east of the city of Hokkaido. Last week, Japan expanded its own sanctions against the North, after a similar United States move.

The post-Brexit trading relationship between the United Kingdom and Japan will also be a central aspect of the visit, with Mrs May looking for a bilateral free trade deal based on the one now being negotiated between Japan and the EU.

They will be keen to demonstrate their enthusiasm for new trade agreements with Japan.

Last year, the Japanese government released a 15-page document calling for assurances over trade tariffs for its UK-based firms that now trade within the EU.

The position on trade is consistent with May's negotiating stance on several central issues of Brexit talks with Brussels: to replicate closely numerous existing arrangements Britain has as an European Union state and then gradually introduce change.

"Our intention would be for our deal to come into force pretty much immediately", a government source said on Thursday.
