SEOUL, Aug. 26 (Yonhap) -- A senior foreign ministry official will visit three Latin American countries to seek cooperation against North Korea's nuclear and missile provocations, the ministry said Friday.

Lim Sung-nam, a vice foreign minister, will embark on the three-nation trip on Friday that will take him to Chile, Argentina and Colombia. The trip will run through Wednesday, according to the ministry.

He is to meet his counterparts and other officials from the countries. The main topics will be on the North's continued missile provocations including Wednesday's test-firing of a submarine-launched ballistic missile that triggered global condemnation.

The official also plans to urge them to maintain their cooperation in enforcing relevant U.N. Security Council resolutions against the North, the ministry said.
