The chief nuclear envoys of South Korea, the U.S. and Japan have warned North Korea that if it goes ahead with any further provocations, including a fourth nuclear test, the country will be hit with even tougher UN sanctions.
Meeting in Washington Monday, Hwang Joon-kook , Seoul's new point man on the six-party talks on Pyongyang's nuclear program, said the three sides focused on devising measures to prevent North Korea from taking further provocative acts and to talk about contingency plans in case Pyongyang makes good on its threats.
Following the three-way talks, Hwang will meet separately with his Japanese counterpart, Junichi Ihara.
It will mark South Korea and Japan's first bilateral talks on North Korea since June of last year.
