"N.Korea Likely to Conduct Another Nuclear Test in Coming Months Updated: 2010-09-02 00:00:00 KST

A Korean professor of international relations at America's Tufts University has projected a possible nuclear test by North Korea as early as this month considering Pyeongyang's methods which have been consistent since the early 1960s.
A US journal of global current events, Foreign Affairs, published an article entitled "The Pyeongyang Playbook" with Professor Lee Sung-yoon writing that the North's strategy has been to "lash out at its enemies" when they seem weak or distracted fuel international condemnation and then, negotiate for concessions in return for peace.
Based on this formula Lee speculated that the communist state will likely conduct another nuclear test possibly on September 8th, the eve of North Korea's National Foundation Day or October 10th, the Party Founding Day and will likely attempt to start afresh with peace talks early next year.
