North Korea said it has no plans "at present" to conduct a nuclear test despite what it called South Korean attempts to provoke the situation.

There has been widespread international speculation that the North will stage its third atomic weapons test, after the United Nations Security Council censured its failed rocket launch in April and tightened sanctions.

The North responded with nuclear tests in 2006 and 2009 after the UN imposed sanctions against its rocket launches.

Satellite photos in April showed work under way at its atomic test site but gave no indication of whether or when a test would be staged.
