SEOUL, Jan. 6 (Yonhap) -- South Korea and the United States condemned North Korea's claimed hydrogen bomb test on Wednesday as a "grave provocation" and vowed to strengthen cooperation in their response, the South Korean defense ministry said.

In a telephone conversation, South Korean Defense Minister Han Min-goo and his U.S. counterpart agreed that the North's fourth nuclear test is a "grave provocation that seriously threatens the peace and security not just on the Korean Peninsula but in the world," the ministry said.
