U.S. vows unified, deliberate response to North Korea

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States plans to consult with allies including China to develop a “measured and unified” response to North Korea’s artillery attack on a South Korean island, the U.S. State Department said on Tuesday.

“Everybody involved is stunned by North Korea’s provocative actions,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner told a news briefing. “We are working again within an established framework with our partners so we have a deliberate approach to this. We’re not going to respond willy nilly.”
