The United States Vice President Kamala Harris (pictured left) and Japan's Prime Minister Kishida Fumio condemned Monday the latest ballistic missile launch by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), The White House Press Service said in a press release.

During the meeting of both leaders, the vice president "reaffirmed the United States' ironclad commitment to Japan's defense" while stressing the "recent aggressive and irresponsible provocations in the Taiwan Strait" by China.

"The Vice President underscored that the US-Japan Alliance is the cornerstone of peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific, and they discussed efforts to promote a free and open Indo-Pacific," read the statement.
