North Korea does not appear to be preparing for a fourth nuclear test in the near future, South Korea's defence minister said. A spokesman for the ministry said:
We found there had been no unusual movements that indicated it wanted to carry out a nuclear test.
Earlier another South Korean minister said there was an indication that North Korea was preparing for a fourth test, but the minister then said he "misspoke."
Through her tears, a North Korean woman told me how she had to escape: risk death while running across the border or die of starvation.
Memories of the Korean war are never far away in South Korea, where residents have grown used to living with the constant threat of war.
North Korea said it will withdraw workers from the Kaesong factory park run jointly with South Korea and suspend all operations there.
