US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Tuesday said a possible missile launch hinted at by North Korea should not be carried out as it would harm the country's international relations. Clinton, in Japan on her first trip abroad as President Barack Obama's chief diplomat, told a news conference that: "The possible missile launch that North Korea is talking about would be very unhelpful." On Monday, which was the 67th birthday of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, Pyongyang claimed it has the right to "space development" - a term it has used previously to disguise a missile test as a satellite launch. Intelligence indicates the North may be planning another launch.
