US considering options on SKorean warship sinking

US considering options on SKorean warship sinking

A senior U.S. diplomat says the Obama administration is still looking at ways to respond to a finding that North Korea torpedoed a South Korean warship in March.
Asked about the possibility of additional U.S. sanctions, Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell said Thursday the United States is considering a variety of options. He says Washington will coordinate with South Korea and others in the region.
Campbell says the Obama administration is not interested in returning to stalled six-nation nuclear disarmament talks until the North rejects provocative behavior and embraces past disarmament commitments.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton travels to South Korea next week for talks that will focus on the sinking.
