Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says sanctions on North Korea are starting to bite, as he prepares to discuss regional security with his Japanese counterpart.
Mr Turnbull will hold a day of talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, MPs and security officials in Tokyo on Thursday.
The meeting comes amid global concern about North Korea's continued missile testing and nuclear program.
"We have a number of major threats to security in the region, the largest looming of which right now is North Korea," Mr Turnbull told reporters in Geelong on Wednesday.
"Japan and Australia are absolutely united in our resolve to ensure that the global community brings the strongest ... economic sanctions to bear on North Korea, to ensure that that regime comes to its senses and stops its threatening and reckless conduct.
"Those economic sanctions are starting to bite."
He said economic sanctions remained the best prospect for a peaceful resolution of issues on the Korean peninsula in the near term.
Mr Turnbull said three years on from the free trade deal with Japan there had been strong growth in exports.
However, there was more work to do and the Trans-Pacific Partnership would be on the agenda for Thursday's talks.
