ANNAPOLIS - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned on Tuesday that history points to "additional provocations" from North Korea after its expected rocket launch this week, suggesting isolated Pyongyang feared closer relations with the outside world.

In a wide-ranging speech on US policy toward the Asia-Pacific region, Clinton also called on China to embrace and participate more in regional security efforts and to address the problem of cyber theft of intellectual property.

North Korea's proposed long-range rocket launch would breach UN sanctions imposed to stop the country developing a missile that could carry a nuclear warhead.

North Korea's decision to launch what it calls a weather satellite but which others see as an advanced missile "raises questions about Pyongyang's seriousness in saying that it desires to improve relations with us and its neighbors," she said.
