Don’t conduct another nuclear test: That’s the blunt message of South Korea to North Korea, at a time when Pyongyang is seeming to sidestep international pressure and plan for a third launch.

The warning, Reuters reports, is “the toughest yet after North Korea vowed to conduct more rocket and nuclear tests in response to a U.N. censure for its launch of a long-range missile in December.”

Most military analysts agree North Korea will go forth with the test, despite warnings and pressures, CBS reports. South Korea’s just-launched satellite, meanwhile, is up and running and performing well, CBS also says.
