SKorea president calls for calm response to NKorea threat on nuke test

South Korea urged North Korea Wednesday to renounce its plan to test a nuclear bomb, warning the communist state would face a "strong and united response" from the international community if it conducts a test.
South Korean Vice Foreign Minister Yu Myung-hwan said the U.N. Security Council is expected to take a stronger action against Pyongyang than a sanctions resoltuion that the council adopted after the North's missile launches in July.
North Korea "will face a strong and united response from the international community" if it conducts a test, Yu told a regular news briefing. "I expect a higher level of response will be discussed at the U.N. Security Council," he said.
Yu also said South Korea Foreign Minister Ban Ki-moon spoke over the phone with Chinese Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing and China agreed to communicate concerns over nuclear test to North Korea.
