Adjust font size:

Japan and South Korea agreed on Sunday to cooperate in handling the issue regarding North Korea's nuclear development, after the meeting of their foreign ministers in Tokyo.

Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Aso and his South Korean counterpart Ban Ki-Moon, the next UN secretary general, exchanged ideas over the resumption of six-party talks on Korean Peninsula nuclear issue and said that they will work to have the North Korea quit its nuclear plan, according to Kyodo News.

The two countries also said that they will cooperate on the implementation of the UN Security Council resolution over North Korea.

Ban, who is on a two-day visit to Japan, is expected to meet with Japan's prime minister Shinzo Abe on Monday.

The UN Security Council adopted a resolution in mid-October on the nuclear test conducted by North Korea. On Wednesday, North Korea said that it decided to return to the six-party talks "on the premise that the issue of lifting financial sanctions will be discussed and settled between the North Korea and the US within the framework of the six-party talks."

The six-party talks on the Korean Peninsular nuclear issue, which involves North Korea, China, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the United States, were last held in November, 2005.
