HANOI, Vietnam, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- U.S. President George W. Bush and South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun agreed in Vietnam Saturday that North Korea cannot be allowed to have nuclear weapons.

The two leaders were attending the Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit. Bush and Roh also planned to discuss North Korea with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan, the Korean Times reported.

"They stressed peaceful and diplomatic means in the settlement of the North Korean nuclear problem and shared the understanding that it is important to produce a practical outcome from the upcoming round of the six-party talks," a Roh spokesman said.

Song Min-soon, South Korea's foreign minister designate, said Bush and Roh agreed that the most important goal at the moment is convincing North Korea to abide by last year's denuclearization agreement.
