Chancellor says Germany would lend its weight to any attempt to end nuclear programme through talks
Germany would lend its weight to a diplomatic push to end North Korean nuclear weapons and missile development along the lines of a past deal with Iran, Angela Merkel has said.
The chancellor’s comments come days after the regime in Pyongyang claimed to have exploded a hydrogen bomb capable of being delivered on an intercontinental ballistic missile.
The difference lies in the heart of the bomb. Atomic bombs rely on nuclear fission to produce a blast: atoms of weapons-grade uranium or plutonium are split by neutrons, releasing energy as well as more neutrons – triggering a chain reaction.
