His Lithuanian counterpart Saulius Skvernelis voiced support as did Latvian Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis with whom Abe met earlier in the day in Latvia's capital Riga.Briefing reporters, Japanese Foreign Ministry spokesman Norio Maruyama said that although the threat posed by Pyongyang was "unprecedented", the full implementation of United Nations sanctions would have "a very strong effect on North Korea".

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe landed on Friday in Estonia, his first stop on a tour of the Baltic states and other European nations as he sought to drum up support for his hawkish stance on North Korea.

The 2 leaders agreed to step up pressure on North Korea and to maintain and strengthen global order based on the rule of law, apparently with China's increasing maritime activities in mind.

Abe also met with Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid over discussions on EU-Japan relations and bilateral trade, accompanied by a business delegation with several dozen representatives from Japanese companies.

Mr Abe will then visit fellow Baltic states Latvia and Lithuania, before continuing on to Bulgaria, Serbia and Romania.
