US President Donald Trump will host a lunch meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae In next Thursday in NY, a senior White House official said Friday.

Just two days ago, North Korea fired a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, the latest in a series of missile tests defying the global community.

During telephone talks Friday, Abe and Moon agreed to ensure close trilateral coordination with the United States in stepping up pressure on North Korea, according to the Japanese Foreign Ministry. That test prompted the UN Security Council to pass sanctions banning textile exports and restricting oil exports to the isolated Asian country.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in wants stronger pressure against its northern neighbor.

North Korea fired a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido Friday local time, the latest in a stream of missile tests that have looked to defy the global community.

"As Kim Jong-Un's most recent launch demonstrates, this is one of the world's most urgent and risky security problems", he added.

"After seeing your capabilities and commitment here today, I am more confident than ever that our options in addressing this threat are both effective and overwhelming", Trump said in his address to air force personnel and families on the 70th anniversary of the US Air Force.

"I personally think he slaps the right people, he hugs the right people, and he comes out with (the) United States being very strong, in the end", Haley, speaking at the White House, said of Trump's speech.

In Washington, the White House also provided a summary of the phone conversation, noting it was the second time North Korea had fired a missile over Japan in less than three weeks.

China will implement all United Nations Security Council resolutions, "no more, no less", Cui Tiankai, China's ambassador to the U.S., told reporters at a briefing in Washington when asked if China would cut oil shipments. However, the writer is also serving for other sections such as local & world politics, commerce news and breaking news meanwhile, also covering special budget sessions.

Trump reiterated his full support for the Korea-U.S. alliance and said he would continue to provide any assistance and support necessary to further strengthen the alliance, Park said.

"What we are seeing is they continue to be provocative, they continue to be reckless".

"I don't think that he'll stray too much outside of the boundaries of that", Collins said.

They said the South Korean and USA leaders were also expected to hold a bilateral summit.
