Biden says that a nuclear attack from North Korea would mean 'the end' of its regime.

President Biden on Tuesday said that any kind of nuclear attack from North Korea against South Korea or other U.S. allies would be met with an overwhelming response.

His remarks came during a state visit by by South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol where the two leaders agreed to formalize a series to steps to try to deter North Korea.

"Look, a nuclear attack by North Korea against the United States or its allies ... or partners is unacceptable and will result in the end of whatever regime to take such an action," Biden said during a press conference with Yoon.

Washington has made it clear it will not redeploy tactical nuclear weapons to South Korea, as hawks in both countries have called for.

As the declaration emphasizes U.S. commitments to defend South Korea, Seoul will in return reaffirm its commitment to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

North Korea this month tested a new solid fuel intercontinental ballistic missile, the latest addition to its growing nuclear arsenal. »
