The Associated Press writes that “the foreign ministers of China, Japan and South Korea put aside frictions over territorial disputes and wartime history to sharply criticize North Korea’s latest submarine missile test on Wednesday in a rare display of unity.”

“Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida, who chaired the meeting with China’s Wang Yi and South Korea’s Yun Byung-se, said that North Korea’s missile launch is a ‘provocation that simply cannot be tolerated.'”

“North Korea fired a ballistic missile from a submarine into the Sea of Japan, South Korean and U.S. officials said.”
