North Korea is being cautioned by U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman not to intensify its provocations | ABC News

U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said Tuesday that the United States will use all of its military resources, “including nuclear, conventional, and missile defense,” to defend its allies Japan and South Korea. She also issued a warning to North Korea to refrain from intensifying its provocations. Sherman characterized North Korea’s repeated artillery and ballistic missile launches in recent weeks as provocative military exercises towards the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons. Sherman told Cho Hyundong, the first vice foreign minister of South Korea, during their talks in Tokyo, “This is deeply reckless, hazardous, and disruptive.” The two representatives got together before their Wednesday three-way meeting with their Japanese colleague. The three officials would be meeting for the second time in person since conservative South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol assumed office in May, which would indicate an easing in the tense relations between Japan and South Korea. After three-way meetings in Washington a year ago, the vice ministers from Japan and South Korea declined to take part in a joint news conference, leaving Sherman to address the media on his own.
