Reuters: US, S. Korea Discuss Possible Response to N. Korea Nuclear Test

Nuclear explosionPresident Barack Obama has spoken to South Korean President Park Geun-hye about options for responding to North Korea’s fourth rogue nuclear test, Reuters reported Thursday.

South Korea is considering deployment of U.S.-built strategic weapons after North Korea declared it has performed an underground test of a hydrogen bomb, according to the report by Ju-Min Park and Se Young Lee.

Park and Lee write it could take several days for experts to verify the nuclear device used.

Hua Chunying, a spokesperson for the Chinese foreign ministry, called for recommencement of six-party negotiations to dismantle North Korea’s nuclear program, the report noted.

U.N. National Security Council has said it will explore potential sanctions against North Korea, while House Republicans plan to discuss a stringent punishment to foreign companies that do business with the country.
