After claiming the latest nuclear test a success, Pyongyang will wait for offers from its neighbours. But internationally there’s no appetite for peaceful dialogues
Pyongyang claims that it’s had a “complete success” for its testing of hydrogen bombs, the sixth nuclear test. Seismologists detected 5.7-6.3 magnitude of a man-made earthquake on Sunday. Both South Korean and US government sources confirmed that there was an underground test near Kilju, Punggye-ri in North Hamgyong where the last five nuclear tests were conducted.
This is less than a week after North Korea fired a ballistic missile over Japan and three weeks after it threatened to attack the US territory Guam. Pyongyang’s aim is to complete its nuclear status by the end of the year. The regime says its nuclear power would protect the country from the US aggression. The North’s nuclear program, according to them, is for their self-defence and deterrence from US invasion.
