South Korea, US, and Japan Reaffirm North Korea’s Nuclear Disarmament Obligation

National security advisers from South Korea, the United States, and Japan met in Seoul and reiterated that North Korea is obligated to abandon its nuclear weapons program as mandated by UN Security Council resolutions. During a joint press briefing, South Korea’s NSA Cho Tae-yong emphasized the commitment to North Korea’s denuclearization and the prohibition of military cooperation, highlighting the need for strict international implementation.

The three nations, Cho, Jake Sullivan (US), and Takeo Akiba (Japan), agreed to enhance trilateral security cooperation, focusing on real-time sharing of North Korean missile warning data and developing multiyear plans for joint military exercises. This reaffirms a collective effort to address regional security challenges and uphold international obligations related to North Korea’s nuclear activities.
