Seoul, South Korea (AHN) - A senior U.S. military officer says U.S. and South Korean forces would have no problem defeating North Korea regardless of their nuclear weapons.

However, he adds the United States is fully committed to six-country talks aimed at ending the North's nuclear weapons programs and will look to a diplomatic solution to end the crisis.

General Leon LaPorte, commander of the U.S. forces in South Korea, tells South Korea's PBC radio, "Whether North Korea has one or several nuclear weapons does not change the balance on the peninsula. The U.S. and the Republic of Korea retain our ability to deter North Korean aggression and, if required, to decisively defeat the North Korean threat if they were to threaten South Korea."
