The United States on Tuesday said it was aware of the steps taken by India with regard to the North Korean ship, which has been detained by Indian authorities.

"We are indeed aware of the steps that India took," State Department Deputy spokesman Robert Wood told reporters here.

However, he refrained from going into details.

"We are certainly aware of it, but I would refer you to the Indian Government with regards to the particulars on it," Wood said.

The North Korean cargo ship MV San was detained by the Indian authorities on Friday when it illegally entered its territorial waters near Port Blair.
