The North Korea could prepare a new nuclear test
SEOUL - suspect activities were detected in North Korea, suggesting preparations for a new nuclear test after the explosion of the first atomic bomb North-Korean on October 9, indicated to Thursday a South Korean deputy.
Since the beginning of this month, there were many activities in a tunnel close to the Mantap Mount, in Punggyeri, 350 km in the North-East of Pyongyang, where the first test took place, indicated Chung Hyung-keun, deputy of the opposition member of a parliamentary commitee on the information.
Of important building work are in hand over there. The services of Western information regard (this tunnel) as a possible site for a second nuclear test, it added, quoted by the South Korean agency Yonhap.
The deputy did not quote his sources.
These declarations intervene while continue, in Beijing, of the multi-party talks aiming at convincing the North Korea to give up its atomic arsenal.
The Stalinist mode exploded on October 9 its first bomb atomic. Since then, information multiplied on the possibility of a new underground nuclear test.
Friday, the South Korean Minister for Defense, Kim Jang-soo, had evoked this possibility. According to services' of information, the North Korea could carry out a second nuclear test on a large scale if the negotiations (in Beijing) do not advance, it had indicated.
The minister had specified that Pyongyang had ensured its Chinese ally which it did not plan to carry out a second test after that of October 9 but threatened of adapted measurements, not specified, in the event of increased pressure on behalf of the international community.
The talks must continue until Friday in Beijing, in spite of the absence of progress. These negotiations join together both Corées, China, the United States, Japan and Russia. They in vain try since August 2003 to convince the communist dictatorship to give up the atomic weapon.

Sanctions & blockade in his face what's Elvis to do? He'll keep firing duds until he gets a live one.
"Hardly, with the RATS in power! They LOVE HIM!"
The republicans, controlling the House, Senate and presidency, did absolutely nothing. The Democrats can do no less.
A second nuclear weapon test?
Noooo, that can't be true.
Wasn't there some sort of announcement or statement a while back from one of our guys that it was "unacceptable" for NK to have a nuke?
You know, like it is "unacceptable" for Iran to have a nuke?
Ahhh those Six Party Talks will cure everything. No worries.
Another stumbling step closer to national suicide.
What Kim is really doing is solving his problem on keeping the country illuminated at night by irridating the ground with nukes.
Melly Chlistmas, Amelica.
I guess they are going to try to get it right this time. See Scientific American, Jan 2007, Page 18, "Kim's Big Fizzle"
oh but i thought NK was 'sorry' for their first tests? Gee- they lied? Heck, Syria lied to kerry too? I'm shocked. Dishonest Arabs and Koreans- whoda thunk it? http://sacredscoop.com
