TOKYO, Jan. 28 (Xinhua) -- Japanese officials met with a visiting U.S. special envoy here on Monday and agreed to closely cooperate to urge the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) not to carry out new nuclear test, local media reported.

Shinsuke Sugiyama, director general of Asian and Oceanic Affairs Bureau of the Japanese Foreign Ministry, and Glyn Davies, the U.S. special representative on DPRK policy, confirmed plans for the two countries to press the DPRK to comply with relevant UN Security Council resolutions.

They also agreed to cooperate with South Korea, China and Russia so as to urge the DPRK not to engage in further provocative actions, according to Japan's Kyodo News Agency.

The dialogue came after the UN Security Council unanimously approved a resolution recently against the rocket launch carried out by the DPRK on Dec. 12.

The DPRK hit back on Jan. 24 by vowing to conduct more launches and a higher-level nuclear test, casting shadow on the stability in the region.
