South Korea warned Friday against backing North Korea into a corner while seeking to stop its nuclear weapons aspirations, after a new media report suggested it may be moving toward testing an atomic bomb. "We need to exhibit resolve in denouncing North Korea's bad behavior whilst having the wisdom not to corner North Korea into a dead end with no way out," Foreign Minister Ban Ki-moon told foreign correspondents in Seoul. Still, he acknowledged a possible nuclear test would call for a tough response. "If North Korea forges ahead with a possible nuclear test, it will have far more serious repercussions than the recent missile launches," Ban said, declining to give specifics.
