SEOUL - The United States and South Korea signed a new strategy to deter North Korea's possible use of nuclear arms and other weapons of mass destruction to enhance response effectiveness amid growing threats from Pyongyang, their defense chiefs said on Wednesday.

The defense ministers also agreed to review the timing of the transfer of war-time command control of their combined forces on the Korean peninsula from the US military to South Korea, a joint statement issued after their meeting said.

The transfer is scheduled to take place in December 2015.
