      North conducting additional long-range missile launches or a nuclear test," he

      However, he said that there were no signs a nuclear test was imminent.

      South Korea diverted its commercial airplanes to avoid collisions before the
      North launched long-range rockets in 2012. However, Kim said short-range
      launches like those conducted on Tuesday could not be predicted.

      China's foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang called on all sides to exercise
      "calm and restraint" to avoid any further escalation of tensions.

      China Southern Airlines' public relations department did not respond to
      requests for comment on the flight yesterday.
