President Barack Obama says he doesn't know Kim Jong Un personally and has never spoken to him, but says the North Korean leader can still take a different path.

Obama says he does know that Kim's actions seem to pursue a dead end.

Obama spoke at a news conference Tuesday with South Korean President Park Geun-hye. He said the U.S. and South Korea agree that they should maintain a strong deterrent capability against North Korean threats. But he said there was still time for Pyongyang to take a different path on its nuclear weapons program. He said the U.S. and South Korea would welcome a change.

The unpredictable young leader came to power after the death of his father, Kim Jong Il, in December 2011.
