Speaking in Japan, Commander of the U.S. Pacific Command Harry Harris not only maintained that the trilateral alliance between the United States, South Korea, and Japan must remain strong but that the world, but most notably China and Russian Federation, needed to work together to "bring Kim Jong-Un to his senses". The U.S.is looking ahead toward a decisive battleground in its bid to destroy the Islamic State group, even as U.S. -backed local forces must still finish the fight for the extremists' two main strongholds in Iraq and Syria.

North Korea has made no secret of the fact that it is working to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of striking the US mainland and has ignored calls to halt its nuclear and missile programs, even from China, its lone major ally. A U.S. State Department spokesman said the United States remains open to talks with North Korea but the country would have to "cease all its illegal activities and aggressive behavior in the region".

North Korea tested a longer-range missile last weekend, which experts say was a significant advance for a weapons program that aims at having a nuclear-tipped missile that can strike America. As Agence France-Press reported, Harris emphasized the danger of North Korea's recent launching of several ballistic missiles, the latest of which occurred last week when a missile landed in the Sea of Japan.
