After North Korea launched a ballistic missile, US President Donald Trump reaffirmed "100% support" for Japan during the joint press conference with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Florida.

This was reported by CNN agency.

"I just want everybody to understand and fully know that the United States of America stands behinds Japan, its great ally, 100%." Trump said.


Prime Minister Abe in turn condemned the ballistic missile test by North Korea, calling this step "absolutely intolerable".

CNN also calculated that US President and Japanese Prime Minister shook hands for the whole 19 seconds.


According to the TV channel, the moment press left the room, Trump said: "Strong hands!" appealing to Abe.

When they completed the handshake, Trump pulled away and Abe made a regrettable facial expression.

As it was reported earlier, North Korea launched a ballistic missile today. According to preliminary information, the rocket flew about 500 km and landed into Sea of Japan.
