Bush warns N Korea on nuclear arms

President says US would see any move to sell nuclear materials as a "grave threat".

    Bush urged regional countries to send Pyongyang a strong message

    He will meet world leaders over the weekend, including the leaders of Russia, Japan, China and South Korea – all partners with the US in talks aimed at persuading Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear weapons.

    Said Bush: "For the sake of peace, it is vital that the nations of this region send a message to North Korea that the proliferation of nuclear technology to hostile regimes or terrorist networks will not be tolerated.

    "In this new century America will remain engaged in Asia, because our interests depend on the expansion of freedom and opportunity in this region," adding that the US saw its role in Asia as one of "partnership, not paternalism".
