Obama says provocations will deepen N. Korea isolation

VIENTIANE, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -6th Sept,2016) - US President Barack Obama warned North Korea's government on Tuesday that provocative weapons tests would deepen the country's isolation.

"Today I'll be meeting with (South Korean) President Park (Geun-hye) to reaffirm our unbreakable alliance and to insist that the international community remains united so that North Korea understands its provocations will only continue to deepen its isolation," Obama said at a regional leaders' summit in Laos.

North Korea on Monday test-fired three ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan, a new show of force as Obama, Chinese President Xi Jinping and other world leaders met at the G20 summit in China. North Korea has conducted a series of missile tests this year in defiance of UN sanctions imposed after its fourth nuclear test in January.
