Locklear: U.S. on Full Alert Against N. Korea's Provocation Updated: 2012-05-01 00:00:00 KST

Amid mounting speculation over North Korea's third nuclear test, the United States remains on full alert against any provocation from the North.
Seoul-based Yonhap News reports that the Commander of U.S. Pacific Command Admiral Samuel Locklear is urging Pyeongyang to refrain from further belligerence that threatens stability on the Korean Peninsula and in Northeast Asia.
When asked about a possible counteraction, the senior military official declined to mention specifics, but added Washington is considering all options as an ally of South Korea.
During his recent visit to Seoul, Locklear said the U.S. and South Korea were considering military options, as well as responses in other areas of government power.
