Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, whose country lies within the range of missiles North Korea has already developed, set out to convince his G-7 peers at the summit in Taormina, Sicily, that the threat is a global issue requiring a resolute response.
"It's a world problem and it will be solved at some point".
Bishop said the "loud and clear" message from Haley was that "when the United States said all options are on the table, they mean it, they are not kidding", pointing to the USA sending a nuclear submarine to the region.
"It will be solved, you can bet on that", he added, without giving further details.
A day earlier in Washington, South Korean lawmakers visiting the USA said Trump has approved a four-point policy plan on North Korea which is centered on using "every possible pressure" while looking for a diplomatic solution to the nuclear issue through dialogue.
Trump's remarks came ahead of a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Supreme Court strikes down North Carolina maps for Congress

Both the US and Japan now have existing, unilateral sanctions regimes against the DPRK, though so far Washington has generally stopped short of sanctioning entities in countries other than North Korea as it recently did with a new set of Iranian sanctions. "In my discussions with senior officials in both South Korea and the U.S., the view was that should North Korea ever be recognised as a nuclear weapons state, then Japan and (South) Korea would have little option than to develop their own nuclear weapons capability", she said.
At the meeting, Abe referred to North Korea, saying: "We have taken measures for peace, and provided various support in exchange for denuclearization, but the result has been a continued breach of promises with the democratic community". "North Korea now is rebuffing overtures from China, which is frustrating China", she said.
To be sure, North Korea's trade flows with ASEAN are tiny compared with China, which accounts for about 90% of trade with Pyongyang.
The United States has for weeks been negotiating a new Security Council sanctions resolution with China.
A few days later, Trump drew criticism for telling a Bloomberg reporter that he would be "honored" to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "under the right circumstances" to discuss their nuclear weapons program face-to-face.
