SEOUL, Oct. 28 (Yonap) -- U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis warned Saturday that North Korea's attacks on the United States or its allies will be defeated with a "massive military response."

Speaking after talks with his South Korean counterpart Song Young-moo in Seoul, the Pentagon chief pointed out the North has accelerated its threats with "unnecessary" nuclear and missile programs.

The North's military will be overmatched by the allies' combined defense posture, he stressed.

"Make no mistake - any attack on the United States, or our allies, will be defeated," he said. "Any use of nuclear weapons will be met with a massive military response."
