VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

NORTH KOREA SAYS THE ATOMIC TEST WAS MERELY ITS "FIRST RESPONSE" TO WHAT IT CALLS U. S. THREATS, AND SAID IT WILL CONTINUE WITH UNSPECIFIED "SECOND AND THIRD MEASURES OF GREATER INTENSITY" IF WASHINGTON MAINTAINS ITS HOSTILITY.

THE NEWEST NUCLEAR TEST IMMEDIATELY SET OFF A ROUND OF GLOBAL CONDEMNATION.

CALLING IT HIGHLY PROVOCATIVE AND EXTREMELY REGRETTABLE, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS DEMANDING ACTION AGAINST THE RECLUSIVE REGIME.

(SOT: VICTORIA NULAND, STATE DEPARMENT SPOKESWOMAN)

"We have made clear we think there needs to be swift consequences."

(SOT: Susan Rice, UN Ambassador for the United States)

"Far from achieving its stated goal of becoming a strong and prosperous nations the DPRK has instead has increasingly isolated and impoverished its people through its ill-advised pursuit of weapons of mass destruction and their mean of delivery."

IN AN EMERGENCY MEETING TUESDAY, A UNITED U. N. MEMBERSHIP STRONGLY DENOUNCED THE TEST AND PLEDGED FURTHER ACTION.

(SOT: BAN, KI-MOON UN SECRETARY GENERAL)

"The test is a clear and grave violation of the relevant resolutions of the Security Council."

THERE IS GRAVE CONCERN THAT THE UNDERGROUND TEST, WHICH SET OFF POWERFUL SEISMIC WAVES, TAKES A CRUCIAL STEP TOWARDS NORTH KOREA'S GOAL OF BUILDING A BOMB SMALL ENOUGH TO BE FITTED ON A MISSILE.

(SOT: Cedric Leighton - Retired US Airforce Colonel)

"What they tried to do is concentrate the power of the nuclear blast in a small device. And if the North Korean reports and other reports are to be believed, they have succeeded in minaturizing some of the components of this nuclear device. // Basically what this test does is it begins to put at risk places like Hawaii, certainly Guam, other U. S. possessions in the Pacific plus the west coast of the Unites States and Alaska."

THE TEST WAS A DEFIANT NORTH KOREAN RESPONSE TO EXISTING U. N. ORDERS THAT IT SHUT DOWN ITS ATOMIC ACTIVITY OR FACE MORE SANCTIONS AND INTERNATIONAL ISOLATION.

IT WILL LIKELY DRAW MORE SANCTIONS AT A TIME WHEN NORTH KOREA IS TRYING TO REBUILD ITS ECONOMY AND EXPAND LINKS TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD.
