SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - The U.S. special envoy on North Korea
has renewed Washington's call for Pyongyang to refrain from
threatening South Korea.

North Korea escalated the tensions in the region earlier this
week by warning that it cannot guarantee the safety of South
Korea's passenger jets flying near its airspace if annual joint
U.S.-South Korean military maneuvers go ahead as planned Monday.

Stephen W. Bosworth told reporters upon arriving Saturday in
South Korea that he did not think the warning was helpful.

He said, "Everyone would be a lot happier if they would drop
that line of rhetoric."

South Korea is the last leg of Bosworth's regional tour, which
took him to China and Japan.
