TOKYO, December 17 (Itar-Tass) — Japan and Russia agreed to cooperate over the missile launch by North Korea, the Japanese Foreign Ministry reported on Monday.

“The international community should take decisive measures due to the North Korean missile launch,” the Japanese diplomat said.
According to the Japanese ministry, both parties agreed to cooperate and support the U.N. Security Council initiatives in this aspect.
