(SOUNDBITE) (English)U.S. DEFENSE SECRETARY LEON PANETTA, SAYING: "I again would strongly urge them not to engage in any kind of provocation - be it nuclear testing or any other act - that would provide greater instability in a dangerous part of the world. I do not have any specific information as to whether or not they will proceed or not with additional provocations at this time."
