Washington, May 1 (ANI): US President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda have warned North Korea that its 'old pattern of provocation' has now ended.
Obama, during a news conference in Washington, said North Korea's recent actions, including its failed rocket launch, would 'only serve to deepen its isolation'.
"The old pattern of provocation that then gets attention and somehow insists on the world purchasing good behaviour from them, that pattern is broken," The BBC quoted Obama, as saying.
He stressed that Washington along with its ally Japan were united that Pyongyang must "abide by international norms, that they will not be able to purchase anything from further provocative acts".
According to the report, Noda said there was 'a great possibility' that North Korea would carry out its first nuclear test since 2009. (ANI)
