The chief US nuclear envoy said Tuesday that North Korea would have to pay for going ahead with its nuclear test last week over international objections. "We have to make it clear that North Korea will have to pay a very high price for this reckless behavior," Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill said upon arriving in Seoul. "We need to work very hard with our partners and allies to implement the UN Security Council resolution." The urgency over resolving the crisis increased Tuesday after government officials in South Korea and Japan said there were signs that the North could be preparing for a second nuclear test.
