Obama Envoy Urges North Korea to Open Dialogue With US

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - The U.S. has responded with warnings
of "consequences" if North Korea pushes ahead with a threatened
nuclear test.
Top Envoy Stephen Bosworth urged Pyongyang to instead return to
dialogue with Washington to defuse nuclear tensions.
Bosworth arrived in South Korea from Beijing just hours after
North Korea accused the Obama administration of harboring a hostile
policy toward Pyongyang and saying it would expand its nuclear
arsenal in response.
Bosworth urged North Korea - which shocked the world by
conducting a nuclear test in 2006 - not to carry out another atomic
test. The communist regime has threatened to do so in retaliation
for U.N. sanctions its recent rocket launch.
Bosworth says if there is a test, "there will be
consequences."
