North Korea Threatens Nuclear Test

North Korea threatened on Wednesday to conduct a second nuclear test and to test-launch ballistic missiles unless the United Nations Security Council apologises for condemning its recent rocket launch.

“Unless the UN Security Council offers an apology immediately, we will be forced to take additional self-defence measures to protect the highest interests of our republic,” a foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency.

“They will include a nuclear test and ballistic missile tests,” the statement said.

The Security Council had condemned the North’s April 5 launch of a long-range rocket and ordered tougher enforcement of existing sanctions.

The communist state reacted angrily then, insisting that the launch — widely seen as a disguised missile test — was conducted to put a peaceful satellite into orbit.
