US President Donald Trump has dismissed concerns about recent North Korean missile tests. In a tweet issued shortly after his arrival in Japan today, he called the missiles small weapons.
Mr Trump expressed his confidence in North Korean leader Kim Jong Un despite Pyongyang’s recent weapons tests and deadlocked nuclear talks.
Yesterday, US National Security Adviser John Bolton said that the tests violated UN resolutions on North Korea.
North Korea is one of the top issues on the agenda as Trump meets with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
