  • Abe calls for ASEAN's cooperation to foster free and open order

With Prime Minister Shinzo Abe having endorsed at a summit U.S. President Donald Trump's determination to take military action against North Korea if necessary, Japan faces new difficulties in resolving the issue of abductions of its nationals by Pyongyang.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and counterparts from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations held the annual Japan-ASEAN summit on Monday in Manila, at which Abe said Japan and ASEAN should lead the development of a "free and open" worldwide order.

In brief remarks prior to media being ushered out of the meeting, Turnbull said North Korea's "recklessness" needed to be stopped, while Abe said the most immediate challenge was to ensure regional peace and stability.

Pyongyang's military launched 22 missiles during 15 total tests between February and September of this year, putting the North well on pace to surpass the 24 missiles it tested last year, CNN reported. "It is bad. It puts a strain on everybody, not only in Japan but all over the world", Duterte said.

He is set to also attend the 12th East Asia meet on Tuesday. Over the past two decades, our cooperation continued to flourish steadily among the Asean external partners' cooperation.
