SEOUL, Sept. 9 (Yonhap) -- Top diplomats of South Korea and Japan agreed on Friday to push for "additional" measures against North Korea's latest nuclear test, suggesting that there will be more punitive action on the communist country's defiant pursuit of nuclear weapons.

A magnitude 5 earthquake was detected at the North Korea's nuclear test site in its northeastern region at around 9:30 a.m. The North later confirmed that it has successfully conducted a nuclear detonation test.

South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se and his Japanese counterpart, Fumio Kishida, held talks via phone for about 20 minutes and exchanged their views and countermeasures in response to the North's fifth nuclear test, according to the foreign ministry.
