In the first US response to North Korea's test-firing of seven missiles early Saturday, State Department spokesman Karl Duckworth called on Pyongyang not to "aggravate tensions." Speaking to reporters on Saturday afternoon, Duckworth was quoted as calling the launches "not helpful," stressing that "North Korea should refrain from actions that aggravate tensions and focus on denuclearization talks and the implementation of its commitments from the September 19, 2005 joint statement."
