Sun “KIM’S COMING FOR EUROPE Japan’s PM warns North Korea will soon target EUROPE with nuke missiles as he hails Theresa May’s ‘smooth Brexit”, 31 Aug 2017:

Mrs May said Japan’s investment in Britain was “a powerful vote of confidence in the strength of the UK’s long-term economy” - The comments hint that the two countries could move quickly to strike a free-trade deal as soon as we quit the EU in 2019.

Japan and the UK pledged to work together to face down Kim Jong Un.

JAPAN’S prime minister today warned that North Korea could soon send nuclear missiles to Europe as he hailed Theresa May’s plan for a “smooth Brexit”.

Shinzo Abe called for the UK and other European countries must play a part in the fight against Kim Jong Un, saying the danger would not be confined to Asia.

Speaking ahead of a state banquet in honour of the PM, the leaders of Britain and Japan said they had discussed the threat from North Korea, which this week launched a missile over Japan in a new show of strength.

They agreed the threat is “unprecedented” and pledged to hold joint military exercises in a bid to show dictator Kim Jong Un that his crimes cannot go unpunished.

Mr Abe said: “That threat is felt not only by our country or Asia alone, it has become a global threat including Europe.

“North Korea will launch an ICBM [inter-continental ballistic missile] and the range would include almost the entire region of Europe.”

Mrs May demanded Kim’s ally China do more to restrain him, saying: “We need to ensure it’s not just words of condemnation, but that action is taken.”

In a statement, the leaders said: “North Korea’s recent ballistic missile launch on August 29, which passed over Japan, was an outrageous provocation and posed an unprecedented, serious and grave threat to Japan’s national security.

“Japan and the United Kingdom condemn North Korea in the strongest terms possible for this reckless act, which was a clear violation of United Nations Security Council Resolutions.”

The North Korea warning comes as Sun Online reveals how Brits would be warned if one of Kim’s missiles was heading towards the United Kingdom.

The pair also promised to forge a closer alliance in the aftermath of Brexit as they spoke at a press conference in Tokyo.

Mrs May said: “The UK and Japan are natural partners, we share common interests as outward-looking, democratic, free-trading island nations with a global reach.

“We will set up a new joint working group to examine how we can unblock remaining barriers to trade and take steps to build the closest, freest trading relationship between the UK and Japan after Brexit.”

The leaders pointed out that 1,000 Japanese companies are currently operating in Britain employing 140,000 Brits, with firms such as Nissan and Softbank already pledging to boost their investment.

Mr Abe called for a “smooth Brexit from the EU” to ensure the UK remains “the gateway into the EU”.

He added: “Our country would like to have the minimisation of impact on our countries because of Brexit.

“Prime Minister May said she will be listening to the voice of Japanese companies so that she will ensure the transition of Brexit in a smooth and orderly way.

“The Government and Prime Minister May’s position is appreciated by Japanese companies.”

Mrs May said Japan’s investment in Britain was “a powerful vote of confidence in the strength of the UK’s long-term economy”.

The comments are a hint that the two countries could move quickly to strike a free-trade deal as soon as we quit the EU in March 2019.
