SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - South Korea's top nuclear negotiator says a different path will open for North Korea if it refrains from provocations.
Lim Sung-nam spoke before meeting with U.S. and Japanese envoys Monday to discuss North Korea. The meeting comes weeks after its failed long-range rocket launch and amid worries Pyongyang is preparing for a third nuclear test.
Lim says the international community has sent North Korea a clear message that it should refrain from additional provocations.
World leaders attending the Group of Eight summit said Saturday the North could face more sanctions if it continues to threaten the stability of the region.
