South Korean President Park Geun-hye had a series of summit meetings with the leaders of the U.S., Japan and China in Washington on Thursday (local time) to put pressure on North Korea to abandon nuclear weapons.

President Park who visited Washington to attend the fourth Nuclear Security Summit urged the implementation of the U.N. Security Council’s sanctions against North Korea by the international community, and discussed how to continue pressuring North Korea in the trilateral meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

“As long as North Korea does not show an intention of denuclearization and rejects any change, the international community will continue to pressure North Korea,” President Park said.

In the trilateral meeting, the U.S. is said to have requested that South Korea and Japan sign the General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA). A diplomatic source said that in the consultation process before the meeting, the U.S. asked Korea to sign a GSOMIA with Japan by the end of the year.
