In Tokyo, Trump issues warning to Kim

Abe to reach for J-pop and golf to avoid Trump trade deal Putin Got Trump Elected, Russian President 'Believes,' Former Adviser Says

Trump spoke to the press at dinner, explaining that he spent a lot of time talking about North Korea and trade.

There is no cooperation between Russian Federation and USA on North Korea for the time being, the RIA news agency cited Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying on Saturday. "Only periodic exchanges of views", he said.

"Somehow or another it requires cooperation", Peskov said. Trump ramped up his tough rhetoric against North Korea when he arrived in Japan yesterday, saying the United States and its allies are prepared to defend freedom and "no dictator" should underestimate U.S. resolve. He said that the two leaders were able to talk frankly in a relaxed atmosphere while out on the course.

The most likely venue for a meeting would be an Asian economic summit in Vietnam next week.

"Japan is a treasured partner and crucial ally of the United States and today we thank them for welcoming us and for decades of wonderful friendship between our two nations", Trump told American and Japanese service members at Yokota Air Base on the outskirts of Tokyo.

USA and Japanese service members standing shoulder to shoulder have made Yokota Air Base one of the most capable operational bases in Japan and in the world, President Donald J. Trump said in a troop talk there, today.

Though Trump did not mention North Korea by name during the speech, the spectre of its weapons program will loom large throughout Trump's five-nation Asia trip.

He urged Trump to pursue a peaceful solution by supporting those within North Korea to oppose Kim Jong Un. They can help us with Syria.

The U.S. military comprises the greatest hope for people who desire to live in freedom and harmony, and they are the greatest threat to tyrants and dictators who seek to prey on the innocent, he said.

Asked whether he was anxious that North Korea's Kim Jong Un would use the president's visit to the region to demonstrate another missile test, Trump said: "We'll soon find out. We like each other and our countries like each other", Trump said Sunday night before dinner with Abe, who for this meal did show Trump traditional cuisine with a teppanyaki dinner.

In South Korea, Trump will address the National Assembly, where he's expected to urge all countries to do more to combat the nuclear threat from North Korea.

He said a decision would be made soon on whether to add North Korea to a list of state sponsors of terrorism.

"There's been 25 years of total weakness, so we are taking a very much different approach", he said, speaking to reporters on Air Force One. It's a big problem for our country and the world, and we want to get it solved.
