Talking about their plans, Abe said that they would be strengthening their defense system and the capabilities to help protect their people. After the phone call, the White House issued a statement saying that the two leaders have agreed that North Korea is a big threat to the United States, Japan, Korea and many other countries. The Korean PM called Trump after the US military, Japan military and South Korea military carried out a joint operation conducting jet drills over the Korean peninsula.

United Nation's Ambassador, Nikki Haley in a statement said that the time for talks is completely over and the threat that North Korea poses to the other countries is clear to everyone. On July 3rd and July 28th, North Korea tested their ICBMs and said that these weapons can also reach the US mainland.
