Pyongyang, May 25 (KCNA) -- The U.S. is still keen on testing nuclear weapons.

It was confirmed on May 21 that the U.S. Department of Energy made two tests of new form aimed at surveying the performance of a nuclear weapon by use of plutonium last year and this year, the Jiji Press said.

Such nuclear test of the U.S. might touch off protest among anti-nuke organizations as "it is likely to lead to the development of new type nuclear weapons", the press added.
