Obama warns North Korea

THE US President, Barack Obama, has warned North Korea that it will achieve nothing with threatening behaviour and risks deepening its isolation if it proceeds with a planned long-range rocket launch.

''North Korea will achieve nothing by threats or provocations,'' Mr Obama said during a news conference yesterday in the South Korean capital, Seoul, where he is attending a nuclear security summit.

Mr Obama spoke after a private meeting with the South Korean President, Lee Myung-bak.

Both leaders warned there would be consequences if North Korea proceeds with next month's launch, Mr Obama saying the move would jeopardise a deal for the US to resume stalled food aid.

''Bad behaviour will not be rewarded,'' Mr Obama said.
