The United States urged North Korea on Saturday to scrap plans to launch a rocket later this month, warning the "highly provocative" move would destabilize the region.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Devoting scarce resources to the development of nuclear weapons and long-range missiles will only further isolate and impoverish North Korea.

Her comments came after Pyongyang announced it would conduct between December 10th and 22nd its second long-range rocket launch this year following a much-hyped but failed attempt in April.
