North Korea has stepped up its missile tests this year, raising fears it is considering conducting its first nuclear test since 2017.

Cho, Mori and Sherman met in Tokyo to discuss trilateral and global cooperation, according to a statement from U.S. State Department spokesman Ned Price. The three shared concerns about North Korea's recent ballistic missile launches.

"We agreed that an unprecedented scale of response would be required if North Korea conducts a seventh nuclear test. We will further strengthen cooperation with the international community so that North Korea can immediately stop illegal activities and resume dialogue on denuclearization," South Korea's prime minister said. Vice Foreign Minister Cho Hyun-dong.

North Korea's behavior is "reckless and deeply destabilizing for the region," Sherman said.

"We urge the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) to refrain from further provocations and remain committed to dialogue with the DPRK without preconditions," he added.
