SINGAPORE— US Defense Secretary Robert Gates challenged China on Saturday to deal realistically with the short-term question of how to respond to an antagonistic North Korea.

Asian nations cannot stand by in the face of North Korea's alleged sinking of a South Korean warship, Gates said during an international security summit Saturday that was dominated by questions about the North."To do nothing would set the wrong precedent," Gates said.
