"Brexit is Theresa May's real reason for Japanese visit"

Britain's Prime Minister, Theresa May has said the United Kingdom (UK) stands shoulder to shoulder with Japan after North Korea fired a missile which landed in the sea.

On a visit to Japan, May welcomed the United Nations condemnation of Pyongyang and said the UK was looking for ways to exert more pressure on the North Korean regime.

May wants China to intervene as well.
