Adding on to Jeffrey’s “post”:http://www.armscontrolwonk.com/1343/nork-nuclear-test about the possibility of a second North Korean nuclear test…
Today’s _WP_ has “an interview”:http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/05/AR2007010501771_pf.html with South Korean Foreign Minister Song Min Soon.
This is what he had to say about the intel RE: a possible test:
South Korean news agencies reported yesterday that vehicles and personnel movement had been spotted near the site of North Korea’s first test, but U.S. and South Korean officials cast serious doubt on those reports.
“Seoul and Washington are having a close joint-intelligence assessment, but so far we do not have direct indication that there is an imminent test,” Song said. He noted that North Korea conducted its last test underground, giving analysts very little time to detect possible preparation.
