Trump, Abe agree world must step up response to N. Korea - Kyodo News

TOKYO, Sept 4 (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. President Donald Trump agreed on Sunday that the international community must step up its response to North Korea after Pyongyang said it had tested a hydrogen bomb, Kyodo News reported.

The two leaders, in their second phone call of the day and their fourth since North Korea fired a missile over Japan on Tuesday, agreed that the international community must apply stronger pressure than had so far been used, Kyodo said.
