US, ROK, Japan call for ‘resolute’ global response to North Korean missiles

US official says Biden to warn China that US will boost military presence in region if DPRK keeps up weapons program

The U.S., South Korea and Japan will strengthen information sharing about North Korean weapons tests and  sanctions against the regime, the countries announced at a trilateral summit on Sunday, after a historic period of DPRK missile tests including an intermediate-range ballistic missile launch over Japan. 

U.S. President Joe Biden, South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida met on the sidelines of the 2022 Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit and also warned that a widely expected seventh nuclear test by North Korea would result in “a strong and resolute response from the international community.”
