US Secretary of State John Kerry called on key Asian allies South Korea and Japan to improve their deeply strained relations and work together for regional stability.

Although reining in North Korea's nuclear programme topped Kerry's agenda during his brief visit, the currently toxic state of Seoul's ties with Tokyo are also a matter of concern to Washington.

He highlighted how Japan and South Korea - Washington's top allies in the Asia region - had much in common such as developed economies and shared values.
