“The two ministers agreed to continue our close coordination towards a robust and united international response to the DPRK’s violations of multiple UN Security Council Resolutions that threaten international peace and security,” the statement read.

Kerry reiterated Washington’s “ironclad commitment” to South Korea and Japan during his meeting with Minister Yun on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference.

North Korea Launches Satellite: Republicans Call For War on DPRK
Last weekend, North Korea fired a long-range rocket to allegedly put a satellite into orbit, holding a rocket almost identical to ones used by Pyongyang to launch nuclear weapons. A UN Security Council resolution however, prohibits North Korea from firing rockets that could be used as ballistic missiles.

Following the launch, the Pentagon said that Seoul and Washington would begin talks on the deployment of THAAD anti-ballistic missile system to South Korea amid Pyongyang’s recent nuclear activities.
