SEOUL (Reuters) – Senior officials of South Korea, Japan, and the United States declared Wednesday that North Korea’s latest missile tests were “serious unlawful” provocations. They urged Pyongyang, Japan, and America to resume dialogue and offer COVID-19 support.

Cho Hyun-dong was the South Korean vice foreign minister, U.S. Secretary of State Wendy Sherman and Takeo Mori, Japan’s Vice Foreign Minister made this comment while they were gathered in Seoul just three days after North Korea had conducted another missile test.

A three-way meeting was held between No. This was the first time such a meeting had been held since November.

Officials from Seoul and Washington have confirmed that North Korea is prepared for its first nuclear test in 2017; Sherman stated it would trigger an immediate and strong response.
