Obama Pledges U.S. Support For South Korea's Defense
by Staff

U.S. President Barack Obama assured South Korean President Lee Myung-bak on Monday of Washington's "unequivocal commitment" to the defense of South Korea following a nuclear test by North Korea.

The two presidents, in a telephone conversation, "also agreed to work closely together to seek and support a strong United Nations Security Council resolution with concrete measures to curtail North Korea's nuclear and missile activities," the White House said in a statement.
