Washington: The United States is "skeptical"
of a media report that says North Korea is going ahead with
its third nuclear test.

"We are skeptical of that report. But obviously it`s an
area that we watch intensively," Assistant Secretary of State
for Public Affairs P J Crowley said Tuesday.

"We will keep watching, you know, for evidence of any
provocative activity. But I would be skeptical of that
report," he said.

Crowley was responding to a question on a South Korean
media report stating that Pyongyang has begun preparations for
another nuclear test, possibly in May or June.
