The South Korean president arrived at the White House Tuesday for his
morning meeting with Mr. Obama. Mr. Lee met Monday in Washington with
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
His spokesman (Lee Dong-kwan) tells South Korea's Yonhap
news agency that Clinton said North Korea "must understand that bad
behavior will always bring bad consequences."
The spokesman said Mr. Lee expressed appreciation for Washington's support of Seoul's North Korea policy.
Before leaving Seoul, the South Korean president said that despite
recent North Korean rhetoric, the danger of a regional nuclear conflict
is remote. He said the real threat is that Pyongyang might sell its
nuclear technology to rogue states or terrorist groups.
