WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Thursday said the United States would honour its defence treaty agreements with Japan "without reservation" after talks in Washington with Japan's foreign and defence ministers focused on North Korea's nuclear and missile threats.
Tillerson also reaffirmed at a joint news conference that the U.S. Article Five commitment to defend Japan covered the Senkaku Islands Japan contests with China.
