Leader of DPRK called for new tests of nuclear weapons - AFP

Kim Jong-un intends to conduct "more nuclear tests"

Leader of DPRK called for new tests of nuclear weapons - AFP
The leader of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un, who watched the tests of ballistic missiles, called for new tests of nuclear weapons, reports AFP news agency referring to the North Korean media.

This is necessary in order to assess the destructive power of nuclear warheads, the DPRK leader said, stressing that the country must be ready to attack the enemy on the ground, in the air and under water.

"More nuclear tests are needed to assess the destructive power of new nuclear warheads," Kim Jong-un, the Central Telegraph Agency of Korea (KTAC), quotes.

Agency Yonhap reports that the DPRK leader also stated the need to diversify the means of delivering a nuclear charge. "(North Korea) should be ready to attack the enemy with nuclear weapons on the ground, in the air at sea and under water with the help of diversification of means of delivery of nuclear warheads," said the North Korean leader during missile launches.

On Wednesday, Kim Jong-un said that his country has achieved a reduction in the mass of nuclear warheads and is capable of equipping them with ballistic missiles, RIA Novosti notes.

The situation on the Korean Peninsula worsened after the 6 January this year, the fourth nuclear weapon test in the DPRK and the launch of 7 February satellite with a launch vehicle that can be used to strike a nuclear strike at a distance of 12 thousand kilometers.

As previously reported, around 300 thousands of South Korean and 17 thousands of American soldiers have been participating since the beginning of this week in South Korea in joint military exercises to destroy the North Korean leadership in the event of war, to which the DPRK has already responded with the threat of a preventive nuclear strike.
