North Korea will probably carry out a third nuclear test in 2011 prospects for bilateral talks with the South are slim.

The regular report was published a day after Pyongyang vowed a nuclear "sacred war" and the South held a major military drill near the border.
The North carried out nuclear tests in 2006 and 2009.
