Obama warns North Korea against missile test launch(Seoul) – US President, Barack Obama has warned North Korea against test launch of a long-range missile which Pyongyang says will put a satellite in orbit. Speaking with South Korean President, Lee Myung-bak ahead of global nuclear security talks Obama said that North Korea will “achieve nothing by threats or by provocations”.
The two leaders said North Korea risked further sanctions and isolation if it did not cancel its launch plans.
“North Korea knows its obligations and it must take irreversible steps to meet those obligations,” said Obama, adding that Washington and Seoul were “absolutely united” on the issue. Mr Lee said he and his US counterpart had “agreed to respond sternly to any provocations and threats by the North and to continually enhance the firm South Korea-US defence readiness”.
