The focus was on tackling global security issues, such as the threat posed by North Korea, and agreeing frameworks for greater bilateral security and defence cooperation.

The UK and Japanese Ministers affirmed at the meeting that they would apply maximum pressure on North Korea to urge it to take concrete actions towards abandoning its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes in a complete, verifiable and irreversible manner.
