WASHINGTON - The United States and South Korea agree on maintaining a deterrent posture towards North Korea and on not rewarding that provocative behavior from Pyongyang, US President Barack Obama said.

"President Park and myself very much share the view that we are going to maintain a strong deterrent, we're not going to reward provocative behavior, but we remain open to the prospect of North Korea taking a peaceful path," Obama said at a joint press conference with South Korean president Park Geun-hye.

"So far, at least, we haven't seen actions on the part of the North Koreans that would indicate they're prepared to move in a different direction," he added.
