The United States says it has no new information about North Korea's speculated preparations for a long-range missile test.
Instead, State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland urged the leadership in Pyongyang to refrain from further launches, in accordance with the UN Security Council's presidential statement adopted following the North's missile launch in April.
Reports surfaced last week that latest U.S. satellite images suggested North Korea was preparing to launch another missile in the near future.
South Korean officials will meet with their U.S. counterparts in Washington in the coming weeks to discuss the North Korean nuclear issue.
They will also discuss ways to better coordinate in diplomacy and security following next month's South Korean presidential election.
