North Korea says it successfully tested a nuclear warhead that can be mounted on a ballistic missile, after potentially the most powerful nuclear test the country conducted in 2006.
State media reported that ispytaniyami that North Korea standardized nuclear warhead, which would allow North Korea "to produce at will and as much as she wants a lot smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear warheads higher impact strength."
South Korea condemned the test, saying that it was a clear violation of the resolutions of the Security Council of the United Nations. President Park Geun-Hye calls the regime of Kim Jong-UN "fanatically reckless."
"The only thing that the regime of Kim Jong-UN can get from nuclear tests, it is stronger sanctions from the international community and its isolation. Such provocation will ultimately speed your way to self-destruction," she said in a statement.
Bomb blast during the test had a capacity of 10 kilotons, almost twice more than in the previous test, said Kim Nam-wook from the meteorological administration, South Korea. For comparison, the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima was 15 kilotons.
"We currently analyzed whether this test is successful," said the official representative of the Ministry of defense of South Korea. A U.S. official told CNN that it was like a nuclear test, but confirmation will depend on seismic readings, location of seismic events and whether it can be coordinated with the underground landfill.
A U.S. air force plane in the coming hours will take air samples and see if he can determine if a nuclear event. Japan will check the area for radiation. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters on Friday that if North Korea conducted another nuclear test, it was "totally unacceptable". "We must Lodge a strong protest," he said.
