Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe Saturday slammed North Korea's reported ballistic missile test as "absolutely intolerable" and called on leader Kim Jong-un to comply with "the relevant U.N. Security Council resolutions."

"North Korea's most recent missile launch is absolutely intolerable," Abe said through a translator in a joint appearance with President Donald Trump at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. "North Korea must fully comply with the relevant U.N. Security Council resolutions."

South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported that the missile was fired about 5:55 p.m. Eastern time from Banghyeon in North Pyongan Province, landing in the Sea of Japan.

The missile traveled about 300 miles, the South Korean Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.
Abe said that President Trump "assured me that the United States will always support Japan 100 percent.

"To demonstrate his determination as well as commitment, he is now here with me at this joint press conference," Abe said.

"President Trump and I completely share the view that we are going to promote further cooperation between the two nations and also we are going to further reinforce our alliance."

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

The leaders then left the session as reporters shouted questions.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer repeated Trump's words in a tweet:
