Seoul, Mar 26 (ANI): U.S. President Barack Obama warned North Korea that it would deepen its isolation if it carried out a planned rocket launch, and would achieve 'nothing' by making threats.
"North Korea will achieve nothing by threats or by provocations," Obama said during a joint news conference with South Korean president Lee Myung-bak on the eve of a nuclear summit in Seoul.
Lee also said South Korea and the US would deal sternly with any provocation Pyongyang, The New York Post reports.
The two leaders agreed that the planned long-range rocket launch was 'a provocative action that threatens global peace and is against the UN resolutions and the agreement with the United States.'
Meanwhile, Obama had also said that it was still unclear who exactly was 'calling the shots' within the North Korean regime as new leader Kim Jong Eun attempts to bolster his authority.
"It was hard to have an impression of Kim Jong Eun, in part because the situation in North Korea appears unsettled," Obama said.
"It is not clear exactly who is calling the shots and what their long-term objectives are," he added. (ANI)
