A senior American diplomat warned North Korea on Wednesday that its nuclear test, barrage of short-range missiles and preparations for a long-range missile launch have put it on the wrong path. He urged the communist regime to return to disarmament talks. Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg said he and a team of high-ranking officials were in Asia to send a clear message to North Korea that the US and its allies stand united on the need for nuclear disarmament. "I think we have a common view that we need to take steps to make clear to the North that the path it's on is the wrong one," he said. North Korea must "reverse its course on its nuclear program and then return to the path of denuclearization that we have agreed on," he said at the start of talks with South Korea's Vice Foreign Minister Kwon Jong-rak.
