South Korean Defence Minister Shin Won-Sik and his U.S. counterpart Lloyd Austin on Monday vowed to maintain pressure on North Korea.

The two leaders said they agreed to boost joint drills, as well as cooperation with Japan, to deter and better prepare for any North Korean attack.

The defence chiefs from South Korea, Japan and the United States also agreed on Sunday to start a real-time data sharing scheme on North Korean missiles in December, South Korea's defence ministry said.

Regarding overnight U.S. airstrikes in Syria, Austin left open the possibility of more strikes against Iran-linked groups if attacks against American forces in Iraq and Syria don't stop.

The U.S. military carried out its third airstrike in as many weeks in Syria late on Sunday, targeting a training facility near the city of Albu Kamal and a safe house near the city of Mayadeen.
