SEOUL - North Korea's rocket launch earlier this month shows the isolated country does not want peace, South Korean President Park Geun-hye said on Tuesday.

Pyongyang launched a long-range rocket on Feb. 7 carrying what it called a satellite, drawing renewed international condemnation just weeks after it carried out a nuclear test.

The impoverished North could potentially deploy a nuclear missile if left alone, Park told the South Korean parliament.
