President Donald Trump met with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae during the two-day G20 summit on Friday in Hamburg, Germany, in the first trilateral summit since Trump and Moon took office.

The leaders are working to affirm trilateral coordination in stepping up pressure on North Korea to curb its development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

All three leaders are urging China to tighten sanctions further on Pyongyang.
