SEOUL – North Korea said Saturday it has no plans "at present" to conduct a nuclear test and accused South Korea of trying to stir up confrontation with such accusations.

A foreign ministry spokesman quoted by Pyongyang's official news agency said Seoul's government was trying to aggravate the situation through "uninterrupted provocations" against the North.

"Through those provocations the group (government) seeks to rattle the nerves of the DPRK (North Korea) in a bid to cause it to conduct a nuclear test, though such a thing is not under plan at present..." the spokesman said.
