N. Korea missile test 'troubling and provocative': US

(L-R) South Korean President Park Geun-hye, US President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe arrive for a trilateral meeting at the US ambassador's residence in The Hague on March 25, 2014The United States has said that North Korea’s test firing of two medium-range missiles into the Sea of Japan represents “a troubling and provocative escalation” on the Korean Peninsula. America is closely coordinating with allies and partners, including in the UN Security Council, “to take the appropriate measures in response” to Pyongyang’s latest “violation of UN Security Council resolutions,” the State Department said. “We urge North Korea to exercise restraint and refrain from further threatening actions,” said deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf in a statement following the missile launch which the US is taking “very seriously.” The North’s action came as US President Barack Obama hosted a landmark Japan-South Korea summit and pledged his “unwavering commitment” to Tokyo and Seoul in the face of Pyongyang’s nuclear threat.
