North Korea's Kim Jong Un has ordered up more nuclear tests
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has ordered more nuclear tests just days after the United Nations unanimously approved sanctions in response to its nuclear test and rocket launch in the first two months of the year, the KCNA state news agency said on Friday.
The agency said that the youthful leader had watched a ballistic missile launch test, without providing the date, and then ordered the country’s authorities to improve its nuclear capabilities by conducting further tests.
“Dear comrade Kim Jong Un said work...must be strengthened to improve nuclear attack capability and issued combat tasks to continue nuclear explosion tests to assess the power of newly developed nuclear warheads,” KCNA said.
He was also quoted this week by the state media as saying that the country’s military had miniaturized nuclear warheads that could be mounted onto ballistic missiles.
