AP SOUNDBITE of Assistant Secretary Campbell's Remarks on North Korea during meetings with South Korean officials.
ASSISTANT SECRETARY CAMPBELL: We believe that our alliance is fully up to the challenge. And we are working across many areas to ensure that we are taking an appropriate and responsible set of responses to the Cheonan tragedy.
ASSISTANT SECRETARY CAMPBELL: The international community must take a strong stance in the face of this provocation, and that's one of the things that we discussed in great detail. We've been very clear that sending a strong message of vigilance, both in terms the alliance, but also a very clear message of how unacceptable this sort of provocation, this undermining of the armistice, is.
ASSISTANT SECRETARY CAMPBELL: We believe profoundly and deeply that all doubt has been removed about the cause of the Cheonan sinking. And the clear perpetrator of this act was North Korea.
