SEOUL, March 26 (Yonhap) — North Korea is likely to push for its second nuclear test if it does not get a satisfactory response from the U.S. on its upcoming rocket launch, a visiting U.S. expert said Thursday, following reports that the reclusive nation has already mounted a rocket on a launch pad in its northeast coastal base.

Art Brown, head of the Washington-based consulting firm Midsight, also said the North’s rocket launch due in early April will provide South Korea with a chance to take the driver’s seat in dealing with the communist neighbor.

“If they don’t like the response, they may do a second nuclear test just to shake up the United States,” the former CIA official said in an interview. He served as chief of the CIA’s local branch from 1996-1999.
