White House: North Korean threat of war, warning to foreigners in Seoul, 'unhelpful rhetoric'

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says North Korea's threat of nuclear war and warnings to foreigners to evacuate the South Korean capital of Seoul is "more unhelpful rhetoric" that only escalates tensions and further isolates the communist regime.

White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters Tuesday that the U.S. is taking "prudent measures" to respond to stepped-up rhetoric from Pyongyang, including repositioning missile defense assets and the stealth bomber flights that were part of joint military exercises with South Korea.

Addressing the latest North Korean saber-rattling, Carney said: "It is unhelpful, it is concerning, it is provocative."
