Washington: Seeking a UN Security Council statement against North Korea, the US has said that the provocative acts done by the country will not be tolerated.
"There was a statement of support for South Korea in the G8, and we continue discussions in New York with countries regarding a statement by the UN (Security Council) regarding the sinking of the Cheonan," the State Department spokesman, PJ Crowley, said yesterday.
"We continue to support South Korea and want to see a significant statement come out of the Security Council that makes clear to North Korea that its provocative acts will not be tolerated," he said.
"So we don`t think at this point that another investigation is warranted. South Korea led the investigation, included international participation. We think the result is clear and compelling. We continue our discussions in New York about an appropriate and timely response to this provocative action," he said.
"So, at this point, we think it`s more important for North Korea to be accountable and to cease its provocative behaviour and seek better relations with its neighbours," Crowley said.
