SEOUL (AFP) — North Korea on Wednesday threatened to conduct a second nuclear test unless the United Nations apologises for condemning its rocket launch, sharply raising the stakes in the dispute over its weapons programmes.

Unless the Security Council apologises immediately, the North vowed to take what it called additional defensive measures.

“The measures will include nuclear tests and test-firings of intercontinental ballistic missiles,” its foreign ministry said in a statement on official media.
