South Korea said Friday it is keeping tabs on North Korea's nuclear and missile activities in close cooperation with the United States.
The unification ministry said the government is also monitoring possible signs of an event in North Korea to mark the 2017 launch of a new intercontinental ballistic missile.
Deputy ministry spokesman Cha Duck-chul told reporters no unusual activities have been detected as of now.
The update came after 38 North, a U.S. monitoring website, said the North appears to be continuing the operation of a nuclear reactor at its Yongbyon complex, citing recent satellite imagery.
Cha refused to elaborate when asked about the report, but said South and North Korea agreed to a shared goal of a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula "for which the two sides should jointly make efforts."
