Obama: S. Korea to show united front on N. Korea

US President Barack Obama and South Korea's new leader Park Geun-hye will seek to present a strong front against North Korea's nuclear threats when they meet at the White House Tuesday. But they also want to leave the door open to talks with Pyongyang.

 

White House senior director for Asian affairs, Daniel Russel, said the joint appearance of the two leaders at the White House would make it crystal clear to Pyongyang that the allies stand shoulder-to-shoulder. (AP)
