'Donald Trump promised that Japan will be able to shoot North Korea’s missiles “out of the sky” if it purchases enough arms from Washington. The Japanese prime minister is considering buying fighter jets, missiles, and warships from the US.
Speaking at a joint press conference on Monday, US President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe acknowledged that Pyongyang is high on their meeting’s agenda. The American leader yet again blasted Pyongyang for the continued development of its “unlawful weapons programs, including its illegal nuclear tests and outrageous launches of ballistic missiles” over Japanese territory.
“We will not stand for that,” he said, reiterating once again that “the era of strategic patience is over.” Abe echoed the message, but stopped short of threatening North Korea, saying that it is “time for dialogue,” while also promising more sanctions on the reclusive state.
Trump on his part also did not hesitate to advertise US weapons to Japan.“He [Abe] will shoot them [North Korean missiles] out of the sky when he completes the purchase of lots of additional military equipment from the United States,” the president said. “The prime minister is going to be purchasing massive amounts of military equipment, as he should. And we make the best military equipment by far.”'
