Manila: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday held wide-ranging talks with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe with a focus on further ramping up the special strategic partnership between the two Asian giants.

North Korea's rapidly-progressing missile and nuclear tests have heightened tensions within its neighboring regions and raised alarm in the worldwide community.

Abe, in a meeting Chinese President Xi Jinping at an Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam on Saturday, hailed a "fresh start" to the relationship between Asia's two biggest economies and military powers, including cooperation on North Korea.

It has fired two missiles over Japan.

North Korea responded by launching another ballistic missile over Japan on September 15.

"We should create a situation in which North Korea comes to us to ask for dialogue in exchange for changing their policies", Abe said.

While its shows of power have been met with heavy economic sanctions from the United Nations, it remains defiant and has on several occasions threatened to fire missiles over the USA territory of Guam.

"We have said it several times already in the past that it is not to the interest of North Korea to swagger around and threaten the world, of keeping us hostage with the atomic weapons", he added.

President Duterte vowed to support Japan's stance against North Korea and cautioned President Kim Jong-un not to threaten the world with his nuclear warfare. "It is bad, it puts a strain on everybody, not only in Japan but all over the world", said Duterte. "And he should realize that he'd be responsible for ending life in this planet if his mind goes out of control", Duterte said.

"That is why we are persuading him, maybe pleading with him to stop the aggressive posture".

He had also called Kim a "nutcase" playing with "dangerous toys".

Turnbull echoed Abe, calling for continued joint efforts to stop Pyongyang's reckless provocations and threats of conflict.

"The issue of North Korea missile development poses an unprecedented grave and imminent threat".
