VIENNA - The UN nuclear watchdog chief said on Monday it had become clear through recent contacts with North Korea that there was no immediate prospect of the Vienna-based atomic agency visiting the Asian state.

The International Atomic Energy Agency said in early April it needed more information before it could take up an invitation from Pyongyang to travel to the reclusive country three years after the IAEA's inspectors were expelled.

North Korea said later that month it was no longer bound by an agreement with the United States for a moratorium on missile and nuclear tests and the return of IAEA inspectors.

"Since an attempt by the DPRK (North Korea) to launch a 'satellite', the agency has been carefully monitoring the situation," IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said, referring to a failed test-launch of a long-range missile in April.
