President Bush on Friday said he would veto legislation that would loosen restrictions on embryonic &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/science/19/94/377/14900_.html ' target=_blank>stem cell research and expressed deep concern about human cloning research in South Korea.

"I'm very concerned about cloning," the president said. "I worry about a world in which cloning becomes accepted." White House deputy press secretary Trent Duffy said the work in South Korea amounted to &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/main/2002/12/02/40250.html ' target=_blank>human cloning for the sole purpose of scientific research. "The president is opposed to that," Duffy said. "That represents exactly what we're opposed to."

South Korean researchers, funded by their government, reported producing human embryos through cloning and then extracting their stem cells. It is a major advancement in the quest to grow patients' own replacement tissue to treat diseases, tells the Washington Post. According to the Guardian Unlimited, The president also threatened a veto of legislation that would clear the way for taxpayer money to be spent on embryonic stem cell research.

A measure by Reps. Mike Castle, R-Del., and Diana DeGette, D-Colo., would lift Bush's 2001 ban on the use of federal dollars for research using any new embryonic stem cell lines.

Representatives of the North Korean administration issued a statement saying that the United States and its allies have lost the "political and military confrontation" to the DPRK
