South: N.Korea May Have Third Nuclear Test In 2011

South Korea completed its military drills on December 23, angering the North.
North Korea will probably carry out a third nuclear test in 2011 prospects for bilateral talks with the South are slim.

That's the prediction found in a fresh research report from a South Korean foreign ministry institute.

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.
