Abe and Trump did not discuss military action against North Korea, nor what would constitute the crossing of a "red line" by Pyongyang, Deputy Chief Cabinet spokesman Koichi Hagiuda told reporters.

China remains North Korea's most important ally and trading partner, despite strains in their relationship in recent years.
