A South Korean minister says he misspoke when he said there is an "indication" that North Korea is preparing for a nuclear test.
When asked about the increased personnel and vehicles at the North's nuclear test site, South Korea's unification minister Ryoo Kihl-jae, said "there is such an indication."
The comments were recorded on video, according to the Associated Press but Ryoo later said he could not remember making the comments, and didn't mean to say them.
