Even though North Korea’s latest weapons test resulted in a submarine missile launch that failed to leave the water, other countries still recognize the potential of a threat.

That’s why the nuclear envoys from South Korea, the U.S. and Japan announced renewed efforts to prevent future weapons development initiatives by the communist country.

U.S. Ambassador Sung Kim met on Thursday with South Korea’s representative for Korean Peninsula peace and security affairs Hwang Joon-kook and Japan’s director-general at Japan’s Foreign Ministry Kimihiro Ishikane.

For months, discussions circulating around the issue seemed to end with the acknowledgement of the issue regarding North Korea’s weapons development program yet never seemed to turn into concrete solutions.

This time around, the three representatives hope to send United Nations nuclear inspectors within the North’s borders for a more thorough investigation.

“We shared an understanding that the international community should send a strong message to deter strategic provocations like SLBM (tests) or satellite launches,” Hwang said to reporters according to Yonhap News. “We also agreed to continue to work together to carry out Security Council resolutions earnestly and to improve the effectiveness of Security Council sanctions.”

U.S. representative Kim urged North Korea to halt its weapons development efforts on its own, while “making good on its own commitments to denuclearization.”
