Kerry, South Korea stand firm on Pyongyang's threats

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Secretary of State John Kerry and his South Korean counterpart say North Korea will gain nothing by threatening tests of its missile or nuclear programs.

Kerry says the U.S. and its Asian ally won't accept the North as a nuclear power. And he says its rhetoric is "unacceptable."

Kerry is making his first-ever visit to Seoul amid strong suspicion that North Korea may soon test a mid-range missile.

South Korea's foreign minister calls Pyongyang's threats a "grave provocation" to the entire international community.
