WASHINGTON, March 31 (Yonhap) -- U.S. President Barack Obama said Thursday the U.S., South Korea and Japan are firmly united against threats from North Korea and will further strengthen three-way security cooperation, a report said.

Obama made the remark after a trilateral summit with South Korean President Park Geun-hye and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, Reuters reported.

Obama also said that security cooperation between the three countries is essential and the leaders agreed to deepen it further, according to the report.

North Korea was the top issue discussed at the meeting as the communist nation has been ratcheting up tensions with threats of nuclear attacks, claims of breakthroughs in its nuclear and missile programs and a series of missile launches.
