THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: Obama - N. Korea continues provocative behavior

US President Barack Obama has condemned the North Korea's recent test launch of a submarine-based ballistic missile on Saturday.

Obama spoke to reporters on Sunday after his talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Hanover. Obama said that while US authorities continue assessing the situation, it's clear that the Korean Peninsula continues to engage in provocations and has been actively pursuing a nuclear program.

Last Saturday, North Korean foreign minister Ri Su Yong told that his country will stop all nuclear testing if the US suspends its annual military exercises with South Korea but Obama said that the US government will not taking such a promise seriously. He said until North changes its policies the US will continue to work with South Korea and Japan to enhance their missile defense mechanisms.
