Associated Press

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Defense officials from South Korea, the United States and other nations have warned North Korea over its nuclear ambitions and threats. Their joint statement came after a meeting in Seoul involving U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, South Korean Defense Minister Shin Won-sik and officials from 16 other countries under the U.S.-led United Nations Command, which fought in support of the South during the 1950-53 Korean War. The U.S. and South Korea earlier updated a bilateral security agreement with the aim of more effectively countering North Korea’s evolving threats. North Korea’s Foreign Ministry condemned the meeting in Seoul saying it reflects a “dangerous scheme to ignite a new war of aggression.”
