SEOUL, Nov. 24 (Yonhap) -- Foreign ministers of South Korea and Japan agreed Wednesday that the international community should speak with one voice in condemning North Korea for the deadly bombing of a southern island, Seoul's ministry said.

Japanese Foreign Minister Seiji Maehara expressed strong support for South Korea, saying the North's deadly provocation was unacceptable, as he spoke by phone with South Korean Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan, the ministry said.

Maehara also offered condolences to the victims and their families, it said.

Kim expressed gratitude for Japan's support, according to the ministry.

On Tuesday, North Korea fired a barrage of artillery shells onto South Korea's Yeonpyeong Island near the two sides' Yellow Sea border, killing at least two marines and two civilians.
