SEOUL, April 29 AFP - North Korea threatened on Wednesday to conduct a second nuclear test and to test-launch a ballistic missile unless the United Nations apologises for condemning its recent rocket launch.

"Unless the UN Security Council offers an apology immediately, we will be forced to take additional self-defence measures to protect the highest interests of our republic," a foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency.

"They will include a nuclear test and ballistic missile tests," the spokesman said.
