TOKYO, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- A trilateral joint statement released here Thursday said that a potential nuclear test of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) posts threats to international and region peace and security.

The statement, issued by defense officials from Japan, South Korea and the United States after their meeting in Japan's Defense Ministry, said the nuclear test, along with DPRK's rocket launch last December, threatened the peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula and the entire Northeastern Asia.

It urged the DPRK not to carry out the nuclear test, saying the DPRK has to take the responsibility of the aftermath of its further provocative acts, including the nuclear test.

The three nations also said they will seek cooperation with China and Russia to dissuade the DPRK from launching its third nuclear test.

The DPRK on Jan. 24 said that it will launch more rockets and a higher-level nuclear test after the UN Security Council approved a resolution condemning its last December's rocket launch.
