Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe shared his support Sunday for President Donald Trump’s strike on Syria this week, and the two leaders vowed to work together amid North Korea’s burgeoning nuclear threat, the Washington Examiner reported.
“[Trump and Abe] agreed that [Syrian President] Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons against civilians, including women and children, was abhorrent and warranted a strong response from the international community,” the White House announced, per the report.
The statement comes hours after reports a U.S. Navy strike group called Carl Vinson was moving toward the western Pacific Ocean near the Korean peninsula.
“The clock has now run out, and all options are on the table,” the White House said earlier this month.
After a strike on a Syrian air base late Thursday night, President Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago in Florida this weekend, reportedly addressing North Korea’s worrisome behavior.
“U.S. Pacific Command is fully committed to working closely with our Republic of Korea and Japanese allies to maintain security,” the military command in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region said, according to reports.
