Obama: We will 'redouble our efforts' on N. Korea

In light of North Korea's missile test this weekend, President Obama just said the United States will "redouble our efforts" to crack down on North Korea's nuclear development program.

"North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs pose a great threat to the peace and security of the world and I strongly condemn their most reckless action," Obama said in an impromptu statement at the White House.

He said the three short-range missile test was in "blatant violation" or international law and "contradict[ed] North Korea's own prior commitements."

"The United States and the international community must take action in response," Obama said.
