The president joined Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Japan on Sunday and Monday, enjoying a casual burger lunch and golf - and discussing the nuclear crisis.

The US president, according to the newspaper, is "unstable".

In Japan earlier Monday, Trump called Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions and weapons tests a "threat to the civilized world and worldwide peace and stability".

"Together with our allies, America's warriors are prepared to defend our nation using the full range of our unmatched capabilities... every once in a while, in the past, they underestimated us".

Kang said Trump's comments on Kim in recent months were an "indication of his strong, strong desire to come to terms with this, to resolve this once and for all". It was not pleasant for them, was it?

"I want to further cement the bond of the Japan-US alliance, based on our relations of trust and friendship with President Trump", Abe said as Trump arrived.

"A full discussion of USA capabilities to "counter North Korea's ability to respond with a nuclear weapon and to eliminate North Korea's nuclear weapons located in deeply buried, underground facilities" is best suited for a classified briefing", the daily said.

President Donald Trump shakes hands with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (R) during a news conference at Akasaka Palace in Tokyo on November 6, 2017.

He also testified that he was "not aware" of anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicating with the Russians. The person familiar with Sessions' activity during the campaign said his testimony has been truthful and consistent.

He told reporters on Air Force One en route to Asia that North Korea would figure prominently in discussions during the trip.

This contrasts with Trump, who has threatened the North with "fire and fury" and exchanged warlike rhetoric with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"Nobody can predict when Trump does a reckless act".

"We may have a meeting with Putin", he said.

Renegotiating South Korea's bilateral free trade agreement with the US, dubbed KORUS, is likely be high on the agenda during the Trump-Moon summit.

Trump wants South Korea to pay more for the US military presence on its soil, which is chiefly aimed at deterring potential aggression from North Korea.

Meanwhile, South Korea has also begun tightening its measures against the Pyongyang by implementing sanctions against 18 North Koreans.

"They are all people at North Korean financial institutions that have already been sanctioned by the United Nations", an anonymous government official said, Asian Correspondent reported. While they would offer protection against North Korea's conventional weapons, they are not created to withstand a nuclear or chemical attack.
