WASHINGTON — The top US military officer will visit South Korea this week to reassure Seoul in the wake of a series of provocative actions by North Korea.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, will meet Wednesday with his South Korean counterpart and other senior military and civilian defense officials, Mullen spokesman Capt. John Kirby said Monday.

"The principal message is to the South Koreans and that we continue to be stand by them," he said.

Mullen is the top military adviser to President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

The Seoul meeting is another sign of US concern about rising tensions on the Korean peninsula. Obama called Chinese President Hu Jintao on Sunday night to discuss North Korea, the White House said, and urged China's president to send North Korea a message that "its provocations are unacceptable."
