韩国证实朝鲜正为核试验及导弹试射做准备 South Korea Confirms North Korea Making Missile, Nuclear Test Preparations

08 April, 2013

韩国官员说,朝鲜今年2月进行核试验后,看来正在准备进行更多核试验和导弹试射。平壤的核试验导致联合国加紧制裁朝鲜。

一个韩国国会委员会的议员们星期一举行会议,向统一部长官柳吉在询问有关朝鲜核活动的问题。

柳吉在证实,朝鲜丰溪里核试验场出现准备活动的迹象,但他没有就有关情报的事宜做进一步说明。

星期天,韩国总统朴槿惠的国家安全事务首席顾问金章洙说,朝鲜可能在星期三前后进行导弹试射或做其他挑衅,朝鲜暗示外交官们要在星期三之前离开首都平壤。

金章洙说,朝鲜的真正目的是迫使华盛顿和首尔做出外交让步。但他表示,无论平壤的威胁是否仅属虚声恫吓,韩国军方常备不懈。

South Korean officials say North Korea appears to be preparing for more nuclear and missile tests, following a nuclear test in February that triggered tightened U.N. sanctions.

Lawmakers at a South Korean National Assembly committee meeting on Monday asked Unification Minister Ryoo Kihl-jae about nuclear activity.

Ryoo confirmed that there are signs of preparation activity at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site, but he would not comment further on matters related to intelligence.

On Sunday, Kim Jang-soo - chief national security adviser to President Park Geun-hye, said a missile test or some other provocation could come before or after Wednesday, the date by which the North has suggested diplomats leave the capital, Pyongyang.

He said the North's real objective is to force diplomatic concessions from Washington and Seoul, but added that South Korea is maintaining its military readiness whether or not Pyongyang's threats "are merely rhetoric."
