NEW YORK (AP) — The United States, Japan and South Korea are roundly condemning North Korea's recent nuclear test and calling for tough new measures to further isolate the communist state.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and the Japanese and South Korean foreign ministers said Sunday that the North Korean test earlier this month would not go unanswered. The test was North Korea's fifth and, along with recent missile launches, has been widely criticized as destabilizing to regional and international security.


Kerry and the foreign ministers met on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.
