President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe have agreed to "enhance" sanctions on North Korea, including targeting entities that support North Korea's ballistic missile and nuclear programs. At some point it will be solved.
"It will be solved", he said before going into closed-door talks with Abe, without giving further details.
A day earlier in Washington, South Korean lawmakers visiting the US said Trump has approved a four-point policy plan on North Korea which is centered on using "every possible pressure" while looking for a diplomatic solution to the nuclear issue through dialogue.
"It's a big problem", Trump told reporters at a meeting of the G-7 world leaders in Sicily.
That's according to a White House readout of the pair's meeting Friday ahead of the G-7 summit of wealthy nations.
It has carried out two atomic tests since the beginning of previous year, insisting it needs nuclear weapons to defend itself against the threat of invasion. "They also agreed to further strengthen the alliance between the United States and Japan, to further each country's capability to deter and defend against threats from North Korea".

In a U.N. Security Council meeting on North Korea Korea last month, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on states to to sever diplomatic and financial ties with Pyongyang and place a ban on North Korean imports, saying that the "failing to act now on the most pressing security issue in the world may bring catastrophic consequences".
Abe adds, "there is a danger it can spread like a contagious disease". North Korea's threats not only affect the region but also the world. Tokyo and Washington believe that behind the North's continued acts of provocations lies the failure in the global community to take concerted measures against the North, with China, a close ally of North Korea, maintaining its stance of attaching weight to dialogue with the country.
"During the summit I emphasized that cooperation with Russian Federation and China is needed to solve the North Korea crisis".
North Korea launched a ballistic missile in February to coincide with Japan-U.S. summit talks in Washington.
State-run KCNA news agency, reported later that the country's leader Kim Jong-un supervised the launch.
