WASHINGTON Dec 12 The White House said on
Wednesday that North Korea would face "consequences" for its
rocket launch and that the United States would work with
international partners to further isolate and punish Pyongyang.
"The president is concerned about North Korea's behavior,"
White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters. "It has chosen
not to (abide by its international obligations) and therefore
there will be consequences for that."
Carney stopped short of specifying what actions Washington
might be considering against North Korea, saying U.S. officials
first wanted to see what decisions were made by the U.N.
