Hillary Clinton sees risk of more North Korea provocation after rocket launch
ANNAPOLIS, Maryland (AP) ' Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says history shows North Korea may follow a planned long-range rocket launch in violation of a U.N. ban with "additional provocations."
Clinton did not elaborate in her comments Tuesday on what that provocation might be. South Korean intelligence officials suspect the North is also preparing a nuclear test.
Clinton said the U.S. would work with Russia and the North's key ally China to send a clear message to Pyongyang that its true security can only come from living up to its international commitments.
Clinton was making a speech on U.S. strategy in the Asia-Pacific at the U.S. Naval Academy. She said that there is no substitute for American power to ensure stability and security in the region.
