South Korean President Park Geun-hye is getting a grand welcome from Congress on Wednesday as her country and the U.S. resolve to stand firm against North Korean provocations.

Park will address lawmakers a day after she and President Barack Obama urged the North's young leader, Kim Jong Un, to abandon nuclear weapons and rejoin the international community.

The strong message of solidarity was delivered amid signs North Korea is moving to dial down tensions that have escalated since it conducted a February atomic test that drew tightened U.N. sanctions.

Obama declared that the days when the North could win concessions by creating a crisis were over. He endorsed Park's goal of building trust with Pyongyang if it honors its international commitments.
