South Korea's Defense Minister Kim Jin states North Korea has kept up preparations for a new nuclear test after having carried out previous launches in 2006 and 2009.

Kim endorsed efforts to persuade Pyongyang to resume six-nation talks on halting its drive to build nuclear weapons - the discussions have been frozen since December 2008 - and described the regime under new leader Kim Jong-Un as "quite stable."

Kim said The new leader has tried to carry out economic reforms but the effect remained unclear.

But Kim Jong-Un also appeared to be following his late father's approach of putting the military first, before trying to satisfy the needs of the country's impoverished population.
